I facilitate workshops, both online and in person. And I love it! Bringing these techniques to you gives me the greatest satisfaction, and it opens up a whole world of new connections and conversations. Be sure to sign up for the Inky Loop – my occasional newsletter, to be the first to hear of new workshop dates and venues.

I offer full day and online workshops in various ink making related directions.

From the hedgerows, garden and wayside ditches;                                                            

From the compost, the wine cup, the shed.

From all these likely or unlikely places we can forage and explore.

Finding hidden in the roots and flowers and forgotten rusting nails a whole world to delve into from which we can profit colour. In this workshop we will explore how to attain natural colour from these places, and how to open up the colour spectrum of the inks we make on the day in a whole variety of changing and exciting ways.

With the use of everyday pH modifiers, we open up the spectrum of the various inks that we make on the day. Whether you are an enquiring crafter, a daring DIYer or simply looking for a nice way to spend the day, come and join in on this adventure into botanical and metal inks. Through the act of engaging with the plants as a source of ink making, a look at the hedge will never be the same again.

Online botanical ink making courses.

I run several, covering The Basics, Charcoal Ink and a third in pH Shifting. Each workshops run 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.
