About the Event

Making ink from pigments found in the landscape makes you feel connected to it in a very special and unique way. Over this four week course I will show you how to source suitable materials, and make ink that can be used to make lino printed illustrations based on the landscape around Craig Y Nos.

It will be very relaxed and no prior experience is needed.

It will start with a short walk through Craig Y Nos Estate finding suitable materials. I will show you the different methods and how to process them into good pigments and inks. Using photographs, sketches and plant materials we will look at the varied ways you can turn them into illustrations that create mood and atmosphere. Finally we will then work on carving the lino printing blocks, and printing the images with the lovely ink you have made.

this is a 4 week course  on the 24th May, 31st May, 7th June, 14th June.
