Laura Daza

Different colours, shades and tints have the power to evoke mood and emotion, but it seems that the origins and journeys of these pigments are often forgotten. However, there was a time when the story of origin was integral to colour identity, the narrative of provenance possessing a power and a sense of magic.

Min fascination af farver har været der længe, men da jeg læste om Laura Daza og hendes eksperimenter med at lave egne pigmenter og farver, fik det et helt andet perspektiv. Dybere. Hun undersøger, tester og udvikler farverne som for tusinde år siden. Den nuværende tendens om at bringe naturen ind i vores liv, bolig, tøj og mad hænger godt sammen med dette. Lære at lave egne farver ud fra naturens materialer.
Laura Daza kommer fra Columbia, men bor i Syditalien, men underviser i hele verden. Hun har udgivet bogen Colour Provenance, som også kan købes som e-bog. Det er en DIY-farve-opskriftsbog. Kan købes her.

Laura Daza forklarer om workshoppen:
"Colour Alchimia is an experimental workshop that explores the origins of colour making. Through developing a thorough understanding and knowledge of how colour was once sourced, crafted and utilized in the past, we hope
to both celebrate the ancient rituals and alchemic techniques and encourage others to once again appreciate colour provenance.
This creative workshop will be divided into theory and hands-on experimentation recreating traditional colours from scratch. It is focused on anyone interested in the colour world such as: colour lovers, designers, artists, makers,
trend forecasters, colour designers, architects, etc.
"

Vi lærer at lave 3 forskellige farver og eksperimentere med dem og forstå dem.
