Wild Ink: Modification of Colour, pH Shifting - Online Remote Workshop 3

Online Remote Workshop 3

Join ink maker Annie Hogg in making botanical inks for drawing and calligraphy from common hedgerow plants. This workshop is ideal for those who have completed the Basics and would like to further their ink making

Throughout this online workshop you will cover -
Recipes for a large variety of pH modifiers. All ingredients can be sourced in the home, the garden and the garden shed!
During Annie's zoom waltz you will make some and incorporate others that you will have had the chance to stew up before the workshop.
Annie will also supply some colour charts to help you keep track of the variations you will explore. These modifiers can be used with botanical inks and serve as a great source of extra ingredients to help you create your own pallet from your inks.

In the days prior to the scheduled live zoom workshop, participants will be sent a PDF to help get prepared. This includes a list of what is needed on the day and some suggested concoctions that you can begin to prepare. As many of these modifiers are a problem to both dispose and make, please feel free to attend the workshop and afterwards, create your own.

The scheduled live workshop is 1-hour duration. There is then half an hour for sharing of results, and Q&A.

In the days after the workshop Annie will send participants a short 10-15 minute video in which she will go over what was covered the day of the workshop and give some extra tips!

These workshops are suitable for participants over 16 years of age. Children are more than welcome to participate if accompanied by an adult.

Artist Annie Hogg is the founder of The Wild Hedge Ink Company. Annie makes drawing inks from plants which are found in local hedgerows, and from a small range of metal detritus, often also found in the hedges! Annie's process involves wild harvesting, foraging and a small portion of growing dye plants, crafting these into inks and paints (always following vegan methods) and finally marking paper.
