We are launching a new paint product.

Join us at the Chapel, Market Street on Thursday 5th May at 7.30pm for a glass of wine and a presentaion talk by Oricalcum managing director, Michiel Brouns.

Linseed oil paint can be applied to any surface. It protects from weather and wind, the ravages of time and the changing seasons. In Sweden there is a long tradition of painting buildings and interiors with this paint. The reason it has survived for 500 years is because it really does provide protection.
