Alcohol Ink - 101 Your introduction to Alcohol Inks and all the fun you can have!

During this ridiculously fun and easy 3 hour workshop you will learn a little about alcohol inks and the exciting things you can create with them.

Ever seen kids playing with paint and ink with abandon? This is just like that, but for grown ups!

You'll see the ink play on specially-created "yupo" paper and also on glass.  You'll make three different designs on this special paper by dropping ink on it! And then the fourth piece you'll make will be on glass.  It's so amazing.  You simply won't believe how fabulous this stuff is and how simply you can make amazing art!

Its mezmerising watching it swirl, run and explode when mixed with the pure alcohol on the surface of the paper.

Please wear a warm short of top, as Alcohol Inks are a little smelly, so we’ll be keeping the space well ventilated during this workshop.  And please don’t wear your best clothes, this is a messy (but delightful!) art form.

You'll leave with one of your masterpieces framed and ready to hang in your home or to give to a friend as a gift which will be treasured for a lifetime.

Included in the cost is:

all the advice and help I can share
everything you need
a wide selection of alcohol inks and lustres (glittery bits!)
everything you'll need -  disposable gloves, brushes, alcohol solutions,
use of my Studio tools as required
Yupo paper
glass for your artwork
the box frame for your final design

This workshop offers you - and maybe your bestie? - an enjoyable experience in a creative, fun and safe environment where you’ll produce a beautiful, original framed alcohol ink piece to keep.

If you can't see a date to suit you and your friends, please email us and we will create a date to suit your diary and ours.  (Some of the images that you see here were taken during an Alcohol Ink event at a Hen's Weekend - they had a few glasses of wine, too.)

I run this workshop from 2 locations, my private studio in Swan Street Richmond and at "345AC" in Mont Albert.  I can even run this workshop in your location as well if you like: it's a great team-building exercise.

Should you want to make something bigger than the Yupo Paper please let me know and I'll purchase some larger boards on your behalf.

You can see a 40cm x 40cm board finished here. If you'd like to make a larger piece on a board lease let me know 2 weeks before your workshops, as I need to order and collect the boards for you, message me here via Class Bento. A small extra cost will be levied.

I have a list available for you of the prices and sizes of boards available: there are actually loads of sizes and shapes in both black and white for you to choose from.  Apparently triangles will be available sometime during 2021, but at the moment you can have squares, rectangles and circles.

My plan at the moment is that until March 1st, 2022 I will be changing my workshops to be simply one on one workshops or for people from the same family bubble. For the moment only with people who are fully vaccinated can attend my classes. (I have 2 family members who are in the "at risk" category) so please be aware of this before you book. I am fully vaccinated as of May 2021.

If you don't see a time and date that suits you here please send me a message here on Class Bento so that we will add a new date that suits you.

I can't wait to play with Alcohol Inks with you!

I’m like a kid in a lolly shop. I’m endlessly impressed and inspired – by the work of others, by colours and textures, by everything around me, man-made and natural! This abundance of inspiration leads me to lots of different design techniques and styles, all of which I find stimulating, challenging and fulfilling.

Anyway, I love sharing it – that’s why I run workshops – it makes me happy and its my hope that some of this joy spills over to you as well.

You’ll can create graphic Mondrian style bowls and platters and feminist-invoking “Break The Glass Ceiling” pendants, earrings and brooches.

You can build wonderful glass Hearts which we frame and you can hang in your home or give away to a loved one.

The relationship between the glass elements in each piece means no two pieces are exactly alike, much as no story is ever retold in exactly the same way, so it is with every glass work that you create in a workshop.

You can truly say, no-one else, anywhere, has one quite like it. You can also say "I made this!"
