CRASH COURSE SERIES

2 hours, $10 ($10 off purchases on the day of the class)

We started the Crash Course Series as a way to introduce our diverse products to people that want to work with raw materials. Each Crash Course segment focuses on a particular type of paint and they can be taken in any order. We demonstrate basic methods step-by-step, discuss recipes and ratios, and empower paint-makers of all abilities. Not unlike cooking, making paint is a "simple" technique that gets refined with practice. Bring your notebook, camera, and all your technical questions!

HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

4 hours, $100-180 (Descriptions and fees on reverse)

Make your own paint in a fun, supportive environment. Each class begins with a demo explaining the materials and process. Go home with ready-to-use paint handmade by YOU.
Small class size of 12 participants means you won't feel lost in the crowd. Make paint for yourself, or as a gift for someone else! It might evenen make you a better cook. All materials are provided though you may wish to bring an apron or dust mask. Wear "studio" clothes and shoes that can get dirty.


All classes and workshops take place at our store. Sign up in person or by phone/email.

We cannot reserve unpaid spaces in our classes. Paid classes are eligible for store credit if not attended.

Due to high demand, we do not offer refunds on paid classes.

Make Your Own OIL PAINT!

$100

You will make 8 x 8ml tubes of oil paint. To really understand how to make the best oil paint, you must first understand the characteristics of each ingredient that is used. Choose from a variety of pigments and oils with distinctive personalities. There will be options for additives that adjust the properties of your paint: calcium carbonate to add body, cold-wax paste to reduce stringiness, aluminum stearate and tixogel to make paint jelly-like, and sepiolite to prevent oil separation.
