Join Babs Behan author of "Botanical Inks Plant-To-Print Dyes, Techniques and Projects", for an evening of natural ink making, using wild-crafted plants and earth minerals, in this beautiful private residence in rural Ibiza.
Local plants and minerals are gathered in advance and used in class to create natural writing and drawing inks, for use with dipping pens, quills and brushes.
You will learn about the different kinds of materials you can use, how to transform them into natural drawing and writing inks, and be able to practice again for yourself with simple equipment. You will take away a bottle of your own ink to use and a collection of your own paper samples and personalised gift cards. Print-outs will also be provided to remind you of this process for your continued practise.
Price: £65/ £60 Conc's
Includes all materials and a selection of papers and blank gift cards for drawing on to, along with teas, coffee and plant based snacks.
This workshop will take place in an outdoor space, under cover. Please wear suitable clothing for the weather. You may also wish to bring an apron, gloves or wear clothing which you do not mind getting messy, however this will not be a very messy workshop.
