with Daniel Docherty and Vija Docherty

Course Fee: £225

A practical and participatory three-day introductory course for anyone wanting to develop a deeper relationship to ink and ochre. We will walk in the beautiful Ashdown Forest and High Weald Area of Outstanding  Natural Beauty; we will reverently forage minerals and materials which we will transform – through various alchemical processes – into pigment, paint and ink. These endeavours will be accompanied by exercises in contemplative pattern making and nature inspired studies in various mediums including traditional watercolour and egg tempera.

Feedback from Past Participants

Just wonderful !  – Clarissa Grandi – Autumn 2021

Thank you both for a weekend of gentle yet industrious interaction with many important soul feeding forces, exploration and wonder, relationships and contribution, creation and contemplation. – Sarah Francis – Autumn 2021

a HUGE THANK YOU for the weekend Ink and Ochres course at SAOG Studios …  I LOVED everything about it! It felt a real privilege to have both Daniel and Vija teaching at the same time! … The foraging walk was fab! Making the inks and Ochres brilliant, and my favourite bit … playing with the paint and especially the egg as the medium was absolutely wonderful. – Sara Hall – Autumn 2021
