Workshop Overview

Alcohol inks are wonderfully vibrant and yet translucent, and they work especially well on ceramic tiles. Learn how to work with this vibrant Ink media. Join this workshop led by Anji, where you'll delve into various techniques and gain valuable tips and tricks for success. Each day starts with exercises to acquaint you with the medium and techniques. On the second day, unravel the sometimes elusive mysteries of creating landscapes with ink. With the ease of "wiping the slate clean" and beginning again on a ceramic tile, this workshop is a opportunity to feel free to play and experiment.
