Colour from the mines

Colour from the mines is a creative programme that will see the first ever recycling of ochre residues derived from the treatment of coal mine water into pigment for sustainable wall paint in the UK.

The project represents an extensive body of work led by artist Onya McCausland developing research into the use of waste materials emanating from ex-industrial and coal mining landscapes across the UK as pigment for painting.
