During Summer 2011, The Managing Director of Unison Colour, Kate Hersey, travelled to New Mexico to the pastel convention where Kate attended as keynote speaker. In her talk she gave a brief history of Unison Colour and described how the beautiful pastels are made today. The presentation includes many photographs of the process and the staff. It shows how the color palette was inspired by the environment of Northumberland and why it differs so much from what big companies offer. A treat for all pastel artists.
