Join us making natural inks, quills, brushes and paint

About this event

Our special guest presenter Caroline from Found and Ground is well known for her use of creating natural earth based pigmented paints.

Come and learn how to make beautiful paints and inks from what we can forage in nature and find in our neighbourhoods. Using materials from earth, trees, plants and water, we’ll make colourful natural paints and deep black ink that our ancestors would have used. We’ll also learn to make pens and brushes from what nature provides. You’ll go home with a kit with which to draw and paint for years to come, but more importantly, the knowledge of how to make art materials from what’s around you, wherever you are.

All the materials will be provided, and we’ll be able to forage for some on the day itself.

For this specially arranged day Caro will be guiding us into the world of natural inks. Using Oak Gall Balls they will be prepared by you after we hunt some down in the woodland. Back at base camp they will be processed into making writing ink, this was the type of ink used in our way distant past, when a feather quill was all the fashion, and you will be making some of those too!

What to bring: wear old clothes as some of the materials we’ll use can stain. Feel free to bring any large feathers (such as goose, swan, gull or crow) that you find in the meantime, as well as any seashells you find on the beach. All will be revealed!

It will be a welcome break for Caroline to deliver an outdoor based course such as this, because she has been plugged into her laptop as she is writing a book especially on the uses of Earth based pigmentations and how to use them, a book Im sure would be rather popular too!

Upon booking please look out for an email from us it may turn up in you junk/spam folder.
