A step-by-step workshop for curious minds, inviting an intuitive approach to creativity, by learning from nature.

Learn how to forage summer flowers or berries and how to make natural ink from our surroundings. During her workshops, artist and designer Greta D. Facchinato likes to guide each participant on how to reconsider the concept of color through our landscape. By becoming aware of the seasonal changes and learning to work with them, with patience and awareness, natural living matter can allow us to create sustainable inks.

Which activities the workshop consists of:
We will explore the basics of wild-picking and of natural ink-making. The lesson will consist of an introduction to water-based inks. We will look at an assortment of plants and herbs that can be foraged in our landscape. By walking into the garden of Pluk Den Haag we will directly forage ingredients that will be later tested as natural inks recipes. Topics about light and colorfastness, the longevity of natural color as well as proper storage for your ink will also be covered.
