Come to the farm and join just after our May Farm Tour, to learn botanical ink-making with Lauren Kemple of Backyard Wildcraft. Write letters, write poems, sketch and doodle and paint with materials your hands have crafted from nature’s abundance! This will be a fun evening of smooshing and simmering plant parts into exquisite colors! We’ll make gorgeous black ink from oak galls (those funny balls that grow on oak trees) and one other color of locally sourced ink. You’ll also get to try many other colors of handcrafted inks. We’ll experiment with various tools for using your inks, including handmade twig and feather dip pens. Materials will be available to make your own dip pens during class or at home. You’ll get hands-on learning, handouts, two inks to take home, materials for a pen of your own making, and a journal for taking notes.
