This workshop is for people wanting to explore different ways of using ink in their drawings, discovering the fluidity and boldness of the medium.

Taking inspiration from a studio set-up with strong tonal contrasts, students will explore the properties of ink and consider the tools that can be used to apply it; from delicate ink pens and sticks, to brushes in a variety of sizes that can be used to create loose, gestural marks. The morning will be spent discovering additive methods such as applying ink in layers of gradually darker tones, and finding unexpected ways to remove the ink and different materials to use as a resist. In the afternoon, students will work on a sustained piece incorporating the methods and techniques explored in the morning.
