Essence of the Earth - Colour Making from the Landscape at Dowth
Slane, Co. Meath
19 July 2022
Learn how to harness colour from the landscape with artist and pigment forager Kari Cahill. Meeting at Devenish at Dowth, explore the colours, botanies and earth pigments available around the 18th-century Dowth Hall.

Following a picnic lunch, Kari will guide you on an exploration of natural colour, creating a spectrum of hues - from yellow and green botanical ink to bright turquoise copper and ochres found in earth pigments within the environment. This workshop will show you the basic methods and tools you need to create bio colour with natural and industrial materials. As well as having the opportunity to grind, mull and use earth pigment, the workshop will demonstrate easy to find tools and materials required for natural colour making.

No tools or previous experience required. Picnic lunch and refreshments included and provided by Solstice Café.
