Inks and Ochres: An introduction to foraged colour



SAOG Studios are delighted to present this three-day practical and participatory course for anyone wanting to develop a deeper relationship to ink and ochre. We will walk in the beautiful Ashdown Forest; we will reverently forage minerals and materials which we will transform - through various alchemical processes - into pigment, paint and ink. These endeavours will be accompanied by exercises in contemplative pattern making (sacred geometry) and plein-air sketching.

Feedback from SAOG Studios Autumn 2021 course:

... a HUGE THANK YOU for the weekend Ink and Ochres course at SAOG Studios ...
I LOVED everything about it! It felt a real privilege to have both Daniel and Vija teaching at the same time! ... The foraging walk was fab! Making the inks and Ochres brilliant, and my favourite bit ... playing with the paint and especially the egg as the medium was absolutely wonderful.

Just wonderful!
Clarissa Grandi - Autumn 2021

Thank you both for a weekend of gentle yet industrious interaction with many important soul-feeding forces, exploration and wonder, relationships and contribution, creation and contemplation ...
