Workshop on Painting with Botanical Inks by Sudha Palepu | 21 April 10:00 AM


Join us on 21 April at 10:00 AM for a workshop on painting with botanical inks!

An introduction to botanical colours, this workshop brings together elements of everyday science of pigments in nature, towards creating art.

It also hopes to bring focus to what we call or consider ‘waste’ in our everyday lives and what we do with it.

The workshop is designed in two parts. First half will involve making the botanical inks from kitchen and garden scraps. The second part will give participants the time and space to paint with the inks, on paper. In groups, participants will learn to extract inks from the botanical sources using simple techniques. Using these inks, each participant will get to make individual artworks for them to take home.

Best suited for adults (18 years+)

No prior experience required. All materials will be provided.
