Join us for an introduction to creating & using inks you made yourself from foraged leaves, flowers, or common foods and spices found in the kitchen. To kick start your sustainable creative practice, we will then use the created inks to design small works of abstract art on watercolor paper.
In addition to your art piece, each participant will take away a small ink sample made in class as well as instructions on how to practice these techniques again on your own
What’s the cost?
Workshop fee is $55
