A workshop about inks, fountain pens and dry twigs.

Using different tools in combination with inks can allow you to create a distinctive signature line. We will explore the potential of this media to create a personal style.

This workshop will be an introduction to inks. Those available in the general market, permanent and non-permanent, pens and other tools.We will learn the differences between making lines, marks and shapes.

We will explore the ancient Asian technic of ‘dry twig’ and its combination with watercolours. We will also learn how to create different kind of marks and textures, and how to create different tones and values.

INKcredible is a workshop for both beginners and advanced sketchers.

-Watercolours (small set)
-Big brush, round not flat (Squirrel “french” Brush is best)
-A cup or glass for water
