Natural Inks Using Earth Pigments and Natural Dyes with Natalie Stopka

03/04/2023 12:00 PM - 03/11/2023 02:00 PM ET


Explore the brilliant hues of natural writing and drawing inks! In this workshop we’ll concoct both pigment and dye-based inks from colorful earth pigments and botanical dyes. We’ll discuss the particular chemistry and characteristics of these expressive artists’ materials, each with a long history of use. Perfect for works on paper and non-washable fabrics, homemade inks encourage spontaneity and perform remarkable interactions on the page. Participants will receive recipes to make five shades of ink, as well as the practical knowledge to continue developing their own palette in the future.
