Friday Art Club: Painting with vegetables at Broadworks

April 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

FRIDAY ART CLUB: Painting with vegetables

Broadwork’s first Friday Art club session – join us for an hour of peaceful art making in our inspiring workshop space and explore sustainability focused projects in your lunch hour and beyond.

Commonly used in dyeing processes and pigments for centuries, vegetables and plants are a great sustainable source of colours, but did you know that you can create watercolours from cabbage or onion skins at home? A simple boiling process (and a little bit of chemistry magic) can get you a variety of colours to paint with, as well as keep your veggies edible for later – cutting two carrots with one knife!

Run by Vickie, an illustrator, photographer and maker, this workshop will show you how to use plant and vegetable pigments as watercolours to create landscapes and add colour to drawings or collages.

The pigments will be prepared ahead of time and we will go through the individual veggies and their capabilities; there will also be cabbage magic ✨

Booking available here on a pay what you can basis: BOOK YOUR SPACE NOW
