Drawing and Printmaking with Natural Pigments

Kate Marshall ran an inspirational and informative course on using natural pigments at Coombe Farm Studios, Dittisham,  Devon, 18-23 Feb 2018. We gathered the ingredients and experimented with using Devon soil, ground-up rocks and home-made oak gall ink  for drawing, painting and printmaking.
