Local Colour by Scanlan & Makers investigates the potential for a premium architectural paint derived solely from Australian raw materials, and asks the question: how can choosing local paint & colour shape life within the built environment?
Painter and colour-designer Clare Scanlan has invited local designers and creatives, known for their unique work with colour, to submit meaningful objects whose colours have been formulated by hand into a new ‘local’ colour collection: an effort to record the local landscape through the eyes of its residents, in the form of pure colour.
This unique colour range will be displayed as immersive artisan wall finishes by Mockturtle, Scanlan & Makers & Justine McAllister at Scanlan & Makers workshop in Collingwood.
LOCAL COLOUR Q&A
A Q&A on the 19th March discusses architectural colour as an experience with the power to impact our wellbeing, how locality influences colour choices, and if the provenance of our paints matters and talk through the environmental impact of different paints.
A Local Colour Afternoon Tea with Clare Scanlan and Kate Berry on Saturday 21st March will connect slow-food and slow-colour; an intimate kitchen table chat and an opportunity to learn new skills in colour-mixing and catching the perfect colour through photography. There will be cake.
