Event Details

Learn how to make your own plant based inks using natural foraged materials!

Our tutor Cat will introduce you to the art and science of botanical ink making. Cat will demonstrate her alchemical processes, using gathered plants, flowers and berries and some simple everyday chemistry to show you how to make sustainable inks for drawing and calligraphy.

All materials will be provided but it would be helpful for you to bring along any interesting paper or a sketch book that you might already have. We recommend wearing old clothes.

About your tutor: Cat runs ColourField, her workshops and online shop selling printed paper and textile products.

Accessibility: Please note that our workshop venue is downstairs at Little Man Coffee, please get in touch when you book if this poses a problem for you and we will make plans to ensure you’re able to attend and be comfortable. Please let us know if we can make any other accommodations to help you enjoy the workshop.

Free places: We try to keep ticket prices as low as possible so that our workshops are affordable and accessible. If you’d like to attend but the ticket price is preventing you then please get in touch as we have a limited number of free spaces available on each workshop; you won’t be asked to provide any further information but we do ask people to contact us to ensure free spaces are fairly distributed.


Other venues: If you’re interested in holding this workshop for your organisation or at another venue then please get in touch for a chat.

We are very grateful for the support of the Community Fund.
