Workshops & Events

Participants will learn historic and contemporary context for paint pigments while experimenting with color mixing in a hands-on workshop.

Friday, March 29, 2:00-3:30pm

We will visit the Bell Library for a look at how concepts of color have been documented in early modern books, as well as examining how inks, paints, and other modes of color have been employed in books a few centuries. Plus, we will make a tiny book!
