Spring Newness!

botanical inks


As the plant energy now rises back to the Earth's surface, we too, are noticing the energy-levels in our bodies rising.

I've enjoyed the first sights of snowdrops, daffodils, croci, and now blossom, appearing around me.

This week I harvested wild garlic, to make pesto. So exciting!

The herb immediately sends a surge of green energy through my system, clearing out stagnant energy & toxins which have accumulated over the Winter.
I feel a cleansing and re-vitalisation in my body, readying me for a new solar cycle.

Bristol Studio..!

With this re-emergence of energy, comes the timely opening of the
Botanical Inks Bristol studio.

A space for creative projects, product lines, private commissions, 121 training and group workshops.
Email to find out more about how we can help with your natural dye projects.
We are taking on new commissions now!

You'll find us in the Old Market Quarter.
A conservation area of national significance, to the east of the city centre.

Old market is an ancient market place which developed immediately outside the walls of Bristol Castle, on what was for many centuries, the main road to London. The area contains some of Bristol’s most ancient buildings.

Old Market has in recent years become a centre of Bristol’s gay scene, and has been proclaimed as ‘Bristol’s Gay Village'.

We are housed inside the Old Market Manor maker-space.

We love it here! :)
