The Language of Colour. Ludwig’s Roses 48th Spring Rose Festival.
In the beginning, there was Light ( and then roses, and then paint…) We shine the light on COLOUR
by nature & man. We celebrate the spectrum of the human visual experience during a sensuous weekend at the LUDWIG’S LANGUAGE of COLOUR Festival.
We are delighted to turn Ludwig’s Rose Farm, north of Pretoria, into a labyrinth of colour & curiosities.
Over the weekend, Friday 4 – Sunday 6 October 2019, we exhibit 200 different color zones, MIDAS paints perfectly matched or mixed with roses – in a super modern, bold, display – showcasing the in-depth human relationship to colour.
