We do a lot of natural dye workshops with fibers, but this time we'll be focused on extracting plant colors into inks and solid pigments. Join Tasha for an afternoon exploring plant-derived watercolor paints and inks, as well as lake pigments and color modifiers. Botanical inks are alive and seasonal so together we will make an ink capsule of this moment in the season and in the year.
There will be ample studio time to play around with a range of colors. You will also take home some inks to continue creating!
All materials (plants, modifiers, paintbrushes, ink pens, paper) will be provided, but you can also bring your own supplies to play with! Sulis Studio is on the 2nd floor #253, wheelchair accessible via elevator, and masks are required <3
