Alcohol Ink Art Class

How to do fluid art painting with alcohol inks on Yupo paper



3 hours 1 to 10 label $120


Whether you are new to this art form or a well-seasoned creative who just wants some well-deserved ‘me’ time, come along and let me provide a safe landing space for you to unwind, have some fun, go with the flow and create your own, alcohol ink masterpieces.

In this wonderfully therapeutic workshop, you will be introduced to the concept of flow art and abstraction using bright and colourful alcohol inks, Yupo paper and alcohol ink accessories. Here, in a relaxed environment, you will be guided by an experienced art facilitator through a range of exciting, fun and easy flow techniques, choose and experiment with colour and neutral palettes that intuitively speak to you, learn how to embellish your work using symbols and marks that express your unique identity and create originals with a WOW factor that you will be proud to frame or use in other art or craft applications.

All materials will be provided and, at the end of the workshop, you will take home two small framed original pieces, one large unframed work and a folio of multiple art pieces ready for you to apply, (at your own leisure), to your ongoing creative practice at home.

Class sizes will be limited to 10 participants (min six students) and are suitable for teenagers and adults. No previous experience is necessary.

Products used contain denatured alcohol and 100 per cent Isopropyl. Anyone who has been or may be affected by these products should consider using a filtered mask. P2 Unisafe disposable masks will be available on the day. You may also bring your own masks if desired.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:


What you'll get

  • Two framed, original alcohol ink on Yupo artworks of your own ( Frame 1- 8×8”/ Mount 1- 6×6” and Frame 2- 6×8”/Mount 2- 4×6”)

  • One large unframed, original alcohol ink on Yupo artwork of your own

  • Multiple art pieces in various sizes and Yupo paperweights (100gsm, 200gsm). A small folio to store work.

  • The ‘in class’ use of a range of coloured alcohol inks/ pens and alcohol ink accessories to produce and complete artworks.


What to bring

  • An inquisitive and go with the flow mindset

  • A supermarket type bag to carry home your amazing framed pieces!

Marty Nuku has been a qualified art educator for the past 20 years in both the public and private sectors of education in NSW and QLD. Marty is currently based in Brisbane and has found that using alcohol inks as a ‘flow’ medium invites a more intuitive approach to artmaking than more traditional styles. Marty says, ‘Line, colour, balance and harmony are achieved through the serendipitous ( the art of happy accident) qualities of this exciting medium allowing me, as a creative and life-long learner, the freedom to explore the high points and subtleties of the mediums, to value the spills and drips, and the opportunity to rework my pieces if I choose, in a way that brings satisfaction and sense of achievement in creating something unique…nothing is wasted!’.

Through research, conversations with other talented creatives and ‘flow’ artists, and with the ongoing passion for sharing her knowledge, Marty brings to the workshop scene an experience that will ignite your own potential to create with ease, be inspired, and open your world to new and exciting possibilities.

I absolutely loved the Alcohol ink and yuppo paper class. Our teacher Marty was amazing and gave us so many ideas. It was a great way to spend the morning and worth every dollar!

I really enjoyed my Alcohol inks class today. Marty was extremely inspiring and made me feel relaxed immediately as a complete beginner. I’m by no means an artist and the relaxed atmosphere was welcomed! Everything I needed was provided and there were many opportunities to explore different techniques. It was a very humid day but I found the studio comfortable with the large fans. I’ll definitely be back to do other courses, but for now, I have some playing to do with my new skills!!

Great value for money and Marty was very knowledgeable and gave great demonstrations. I really enjoyed this workshop.
The venue is extremely hot with no air con, the fans just circulate hot air and the chairs are very uncomfortable.
