This workshop is perfect for painters of all levels who want to gain a better understanding of their materials and tools. During the workshop, students will create their own watercolour set and use it to paint geometric compositions.

The course will also cover the history of pigments and their symbolic and alchemical associations, including links to planetary archetypes.

The class will end with students creating a series of geometric pattern paintings using the handmade colours they created during the workshop.

Workshop Lead: Adam Williamson
