Giordano Faustini & Giulia Dubini are visiting Bilston Creek Farm from Italy. Originally from Northern Italy they grew up immersed in the hillsides of the Dolomites and connected with the beauty of nature. They studied Art & Design at renowned Italian universities. They have travelled the world building their desire to bridge the structure of art with nature.
Giulia & Giordi are excited to share their knowledge and experiences at Bilston Creek Farm. They will guide you through the process step by step to create your own pigments from nature. Perfect for all skill levels.
Participants will largely focus on one process with multiple methods of extracting pigments from plants around the Farm and preparing paints using the pigments with natural binders. We will work with naturally derived pigments from lavender, fir, flowers, and more.
Giordi will introduce the history of pigments and their application in making art. As well, discuss the methodology of pigment classification. This workshop will be both informative and technique immersive.
