What you can expect from The Basics:

*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.

 

How the workshops work:

Each workshop runs 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.
