Event Description

Field Portfolio with Sketchbook

and Storage Box with Hand Gathered Pigments

Instructor: Sandy Webster
July 11 - 13
10am – 5pm

We are thrilled to bring Sandy back to The Ranch!! As the publication of her book: "Earthen Pigments” neared – we chose a curriculum that brings together several of her techniques in a class aimed at artists, writers, chefs, makers, book smiths, travelers, and ponderers of all kind!

Students will start by making watercolors from their hand gathered soils. Through hands-on demonstrations we will process our own unique paints using various methods of extracting the color. These will then be ground into beautiful paints to be used on paper and cloth. We will get at least four colors to add to our supplies box. Next a portfolio and renewable sketchbook sheets will be made using book board, decorative papers and Arches 140lb hot press papers stitched with waxed linen thread. Papers, paints, pencils, pens, places for collected objects and eyeglasses …. whatever is needed can be accommodated in these highly individualized portfolios that travel from field to studio. Students will finish with actually using the portfolio/book in the field. (Note: students may also apply these techniques to making tool “cabinets”, jewelry portfolios, travel journals etc, etc.)

Course # 1452325 $385. (materials fee $15.)
(materials list @ registration)
