MASTERCLASS 1: Natural pigments walk, an educational excursion
Especially for D’O studio-gallery, Dorieke Schreurs has developed a program of master classes around natural pigments, making paint and painting with sustainable paint. These Masterclasses can be followed individually or as a supplement to each other in a cycle. The masterclasses tie in with her work as a visual artist and researcher, with a focus on sustainability and working cradle-to-cradle.
During Masterclass 1. a educational excursion you will be invited to join a walk where you will learn everything about the raw materials that form the basis for natural pigments. During this walk you will also look for natural pigments from your own region. You will receive an explanation about responsible “harvesting” of the found raw materials and which color options they provide. We will start our Masterclass with a visit of the exhibition Terra Madre at D’O studio-gallery, an artist talk and a coffee or tea, afterwards we will start our walk in the local surroundings. On our way we will be harvesting local soil called Löss and we will be heading to the Heerdeberg Estate, where we will be harvesting some local Mergel. At the Heerdeberg Estate we will have a table waiting for us to enjoy a drink and appetizers!
After this we will walk back to D’O studio-gallery.
Other requirements: Provide good walking shoes and clothing that can take a beating.
Location: We gather at D’O studio-gallery, (Torenstraat 2, 6267 ES Cadier en Keer) and we will end here too.
