painting with your nose
Collaboration with Maki Ueda
Exploring the sense of smell. An intense workshop experience for children.
Using large spice mortars we will work together using spices from the kitchens of both Asia and the low lands: kafﬁr lime leaves, black pepper, whole green cardamom, anise stars, cinnamon and allspice. The children work together to grind the spices and as the pods are broken and pulverised, the room ﬁlls with smells. We talk about the smells and what they remind us of. We then mix the ground spices with the paint-base made from milk and cornstarch. Then each child makes a smell painting on blotting paper.
