DIY Shades of Bristol

 Craftivism, Arnolfini

December 2009 – February 2010

A city-wide colour mapping project resulting in a limited edition swatch book recording the personal shades and DIY top-tips shared with the artist through over 60 conversations and encounters across Bristol. The swatch book and a selection of self-mixed eco-paints were presented at Arnolfini during Craftivism and then (re)distributed through participants and their networks.

Curated by Zoe Sherman/Relational and supported by Naturepaint.


Limited Edition Bookwork

The swatch book was produced as a limited edition of 100 and there are still a few remaining to buy for £10. They can be ordered through the studio here.
