Description

Making Natural Inks

Explore the traditional art of natural inkmaking, using locally sourced plant materials in this 3 hour hands-on workshop with Mandurah artist, Helen Coleman. Participants will discover how to make inks from plants using water-based and alcohol extraction techniques. Students will also learn how to enhance the quality of their inks by reduction and addition of gum arabic solution, and see the effect of modifiers on colour.. The final session will be a chance to experiment with these inks, using brushes and dip pens. Each student will take home samples of 3 natural inks prepared during the workshop, and a personalised artwork made with these inks.

All materials and equipment supplied.

Light refreshments provided - please advise if you have particular nutritional requirements.
