Since time immemorial, people have used earth pigments to add color to their surroundings. Pigments were mixed with different binders and fillers to process these dyes in different ways.


Come and work with these beautiful natural colors and create your own artist materials at the Ambacht in Beeld Festival.


Chalk paint is a matt natural paint, which you can use on both walls and furniture and which you can very well make yourself. Come learn how to do this and mix your own paint. This paint is nature-friendly, you know exactly what is in it and you create your own colours!
