Incorporating exercises on the ancient colour palette with David Cranswick PhD (artist in residence at the Renaissance Art Studio, Cowdray House)

Learn the alchemy and processes involved in making your own set of watercolour and gouache paints.

The roots, berries and minerals that we will be precipitating, grinding and binding, all have layered correspondences that link to the planetary archetypes. Other mediums, methods and recipes such as egg tempera, encaustic, casein and oil paint will also be explored.

‘I feel inspired, overwhelmed, excited … A wonderful therapeutic week, so much knowledge and new stuff and an array of beautiful colours. Thank you Daniel and David.’ Molly Mahon
