A summary
Natural Paint Making – then create... Make natural, ephemeral paint using all natural materials - then make your own brush and get painting... Use hand-made, wooden mortar & pestle with Chalk, Clay and Charcoal - plus other seasonal colours - to make powder, sieve and add water to make paint. Make your own brushes too by bashing a hazel or elm wand until it has a fibrous tip. Then paint… on paper, bark, leaves, trees, yourselves – use brushes, fingers, hands – shoes and socks off and walk around in the paint..! – throw it, splash it, dib it, dab it… Lots of noise and bashing then relax and paint. Be prepared to get very grubby…! All done with a Fire and a lot of Joy... Given time - we will also have a look at how to make the Mortars.
About your mentor
Chris Knight
An outdoor enthusiast and pragmatist...
I see myself as an outdoor enthusiast and pragmatist. I love sharing what I’ve learned over the years. Outdoor learning should be open to everyone, complete novice or budding expert, engaging and enjoyable. It’s not about ability or skill, just simple ideas enthusiastically delivered to invite people to learn something new, enjoy being outdoors, relax and have fun - and sit round a fire of course... “Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. John Muir
