Natural Ink & Hoop Art Workshop

Natural Ink Hoop Art Workshop


Saturday, February 29

TIME: 1:00pm – 3:00pm

In the Gallery/ Porch Room

Join artist Melissa Jenkins as she guides you in a workshop introducing you to the world of natural ink. You will create your own hoop art with handmade natural inks. Melissa is a local

abstract artist and former high school teacher. She has taught several workshops at West Elm in Toronto, Rug and Weave in Guelph and in various locations in and around Erin.

Melissa will walk you through the process of creating ink from both foraged plants and avocado stones. Next, you will have access to several samples of colourful ink to paint two of your very
own paintings onto canvas and hoop.

All art supplies are included in the workshop.

Please bring with you an apron or paint shirt.

You will take home your two completed hoops, two bottles of ink, ink recipes and detailed instructions should you wish to recreate the hoop art at home.

No previous art experience is needed.
