Come to the woods and create a handmade card or print, using your own hand carved woodblock and handmade, foraged inks.
We will take a short foraging walk, looking at wild plants, trees and bark and which parts can be used to extract colour.
I will show you my ink and dye collection and we will look at how to make natural inks from a number of materials, colour is everywhere and it is an endless fascination as to how many colours nature holds!
We will also learn how to use woodblock gouges to create an A5 or A6 print that you can use again and again to produce cards or small prints.
You will go away with your unique woodblock and prints and some handmade black ink that you can use again at home.
Don’t work if you think that you cant draw or be creative, you can! I will guide you through a process to get inspired, design and carve your own prints.
If you have a design or idea in mind then feel free to bring some ideas or resources along with you.
