Introducing the application of alcohol inks to the ‘homewares’ scene!
This is a great opportunity to think outside the box and get creative with household items that will result in stunning, statement pieces or the creation of that special ‘pizzazz’ to your space.
In this wonderfully, therapeutic workshop you will be introduced to the concept of ‘flow’ art and abstraction using bright and colourful alcohol inks and easy instructions and demonstrations on how to apply these to both 2D and 3D forms.
Colours and styles can be mixed and matched according to your preference and you can work at your own pace…you will have plenty of time to ask questions and practice.
All materials will be made available in class and class sizes will be limited to 10 participants ( min. 5 students) and are suitable for older teenagers , 16yrs and over, and adults. No previous experience is necessary, however, this class would be an excellent ‘next step’ for those already familiar with the medium.
As chemicals are used in the form of inks and Isopropyl/ methylated spirits/ fixatives, it is advisable that children under the age of 16, expectant mothers and anyone who has been, or may be affected by fumes to consider the risk. Participants may bring their own respirators or choose to use the disposable filtered Unisafe P2 Blue masks available in class.

Marty says, ‘Line, colour, balance and harmony are achieved through the serendipitous ( the art of happy accidents) qualities of this exciting medium allowing me, as a creative, the freedom to explore the high points and subtleties of the mediums, to value the spills and drips, and take the opportunity to rework my pieces, if I choose. Through the process of ‘play’ students will discover a sense of achievement and satisfaction in creating something unique..nothing is wasted!’.
