  • Workshop Voucher €30

Vouchers for my online botanical ink making courses. I run several, covering The Basics, Charcoal Ink and a third in pH Shifting.

Each workshops run in three parts. A week before our live zoom, I send you a prep PDF or video. Then, on the day of our workshop, we spend 1 hour making and 30 minutes sharing our results and covering any questions.
The third part of each is a very short re-cap video that I send out covering what we did and adding some extra tips. You have access to this video and a recording of the workshop which you can download if you wish.

Upcoming workshops -
The Basics – A Wild Ink Making Workshop will be held on Tuesday 24th November at 7pm (GMT)
With Charcoal Ink Making – From Plant to Bottle happening Thursday 26th November, 3.30pm (GMT)
And pH Shifting Modifiers will run Wednesday 2nd December at 7pm (GMT)

A brief outline of each workshop is below.

What you can expect from The Basics:

Throughout this workshop we will-
Learn how to extract colour in a number of ways from seasonal plants.
We will cover the relevance of note keeping and start documenting the process.
Using simple household modifiers will explore the pH values and how to tweak botanical inks to increase the varieties of colours from one plant.
We will also take a look at foraging for colour in our hedgerows and how best to do this sustainably.

You will finish up with one ink that you have made and the knowledge of how to make ink from other plants.

What you can expect from The Charcoal Ink Workshop:

Throughout this online workshop we will cover-
Making charcoal at home from a variety of hedgerow plants, what to use and how to use it to get tinkling charred results.
This is sent to you in the form of a downloadable video.
We will look at some methods for making drawing ink from our charcoal on our zoom meeting and you will have two jars of ink by the end of our zoom waltz.

What you can expect from the pH Shifting Modifiers-Open The Colours Workshop:

This workshop is ideal for those who have done the Basics and would like to further their ink making.
We will cover-
Recipes for a large variety of pH modifiers. All ingredients can be sourced in the home, the garden and the garden shed!
During our zoom waltz we will make some and incorporate others that you will have had the chance to stew up before the workshop.
I will also supply some colour charts to help you keep track of the variations we will explore. These modifiers can be used with botanical inks and serve as a great source of extra ingredients to help you create your own pallet from your inks.
