Write, sketch, and paint with materials your hands have crafted from nature’s abundance! Smoosh and simmer plant parts into exquisite colors – we’ll make gorgeous black ink from oak galls, rich brown ink from black walnut hulls, and one other locally harvested color. You’ll also get to play with many other colors of handcrafted inks. Finally we’ll experiment with various tools for using your inks, including handmade twig and feather dip pens. You’ll get hands-on learning, handouts, three inks to take home, and a pen of your own making.

Field day is easy (up to 1 mile of hiking).

Ages 12+ welcome.
