Natural Pigment Making: Local Foraging to Create Plant-Based Watercolors. In this workshop, we will make watercolor paints from plants found in the area around Sou’wester. During day 1, we will ethically forage local plants and begin the process of extracting their color. We will also prepare a container for our finished paints. In the second day, participants will learn how to filter out pigment and use it to create watercolor. Each participant will leave with a set of watercolor paints created from the colors of the Sou’wester landscape.

Born and raised in Portland, Paige was introduced to ceramics at a young age to help with deficiencies in mainstream academia. She found her stride in making the human form, taking it into college, and earning a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Ceramics. In a constant pursuit to expand her practice, she has participated in many residences in the US and abroad. This passion led her to take ceramic-centric jobs such as production potter, glaze department supervisor, and adjunct ceramic faculty. Currently, she teaches weekly Ceramics classes and Workshops at Radius Ceramic Studio and in her own classroom The Wright Clay Studio in Portland.
