Workshop Overview

This workshop will begin with foraging for suitable materials on Cascade Head to be made into inks, identifying and learning what to look for. We will bring our materials back to the studio and start processing our foraged goods. We will learn different methods of ink making and leave some to soak overnight. The following day we will finish our inks and experiment with modifiers as we chart our colors and play with the many possibilities. Molly will lead participants through her painting process of building layers with the "living" inks to create a beautiful set of cards and small paintings to take home.
