Medieval Demonstrations at Corfe Castle – Paint Maker and Cutler

Medieval paint maker: colours & wall decoration.

Discover how colourful buildings were during the medieval period, from simple hovels to grand castles! Mistress Gabrielle will present various pigments, brushes and paints used at the time, and how colour merchants and paint makers worked at the time. This might inspire you to make your own natural paints at home, or see Corfe Castle under a new, colourful light!
