The color red has been one that represented power, strength and courage.  From the earliest cave paintings to its use as body embellishment, the use of red reminds us today of just how important color was to global cultures throughout history.   This workshop will explore the natural sources of red from plant, animal and mineral sources.  We will expand our red options using different modifiers and additives and look at the importance of temperature and water in  this deep dive into one of the most important historic colors
