‘A History of Pigments – Cave painting to Modern Day’ was the title of this recent event organised by SDC’s North of England Region.
The evening started with a hot buffet, once again spoken very highly of by all in attendance! Conversation flowed and was enjoyed by all, a mix of attendees from all aspects of industry and academia, even a couple of officers of the Midlands region!
Dr Christine Holdstock was introduced by Dr Muriel Rigout, Honorary Chair of the North of England Region. Christine started the evening by showing the group a ‘hand-crocheted-space-dyed’ cardigan.
