Earth pigments include ochres, naturally coloured clays and rocks, which have been providing colour since prehistoric times. They are strong, lightfast, permanent and hugely versatile in how they can be utilised. As well as explaining the background and ancient uses for these pigments, this course will be hands-on. You will use earth pigments as your prehistoric ancestors did and then look at the many ways you can continue to employ them in your own home and life.
