Paint making with Barry Thomas

The paint making and painting workshop was a trial at 19 Tory to see who is interested in experiencing a return to old methods of paint making. In the 4 hour session participants ground raw earth pigments, learned where to collect them, some art and paint making history about oil paint, tempera and PVA based paints. Then each was able to put the 8 colours we made into their own painting. from the 30 who said they were coming and the ten who were contacted and who confirmed their attendance – only 2.5 adults and one child made it. We had a good time and one said, “It even changed my life”
