Wild Ink: Charcoal Ink & Other Beautiful Blacks - Online Remote Workshop 2

Online Remote Workshop 2

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 -
Making charcoal at home from a variety of hedgerow plants, what to use and how to use it to get tinkling charred results.
This is sent to you in the form of a downloadable video before our workshop.
You will look at some methods for making drawing ink from our charcoal along with other historical black inks.
You will receive recipes to try with several different plants and dabble in alchemy!

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.
