We will be foraging oak galls, using native stone mortars to grind the galls, and learning to make ink!

Did you know that oakgall ink has been used for over 2000 years? It is an ancient recipe used by Da Vinci, Bach, Isaac Newton, and monks of old- on some of the oldest and most precious manuscripts and sketches. In this workshop we focus on creating with natural and foraged supplies, using a simple recipe, that can produce a permanent ink out of oak galls, iron, and water. through a few steps we mix these substances, this mixture then undergoes a process of fermentation. By the end of the fermentation period you will have a rich ink to write draw or paint with.
