About the event

In this free workshop we will start  with a short walk to the dye garden in Georgetown and then return to Laura’s studio to learn how to extract pigment and make watercolor paints.  Participants will learn the similarities between pigment extraction and wastewater treatment process and get to take home a tin of some the watercolors the group creates.

Directions to the studio will be sent a few days prior to the event date.  Priority for participation will be given to community members in the Duwamish Valley.  The workshop is appropriate for age 12 (minors accompanied by adults) to adult. Space is limited to 12 participants, so please only sign up if you are committed to attending.
