Art Workshop – The Art of Cabbage with Nathalie Dubois
Did you know that cabbages are like chameleons? They can change colours according to acidity! Artist Nathalie Dubois will show you how to use cabbage mixed with different liquids to create eco-friendly paints and dyes. You’ll even get to taste some of the concoctions! Recipe results can vary, but do expect bright and bold palettes!
