An introduction to 3 different techniques to ink making from natural local sources foraged and brought to class by Molly Holmlund. What do we mean by foraged? We will make inks from oak galls, Oregon grape and rose petals— all sourced from the Columbia River Gorge. We will experiment with modifiers (vinegar, alum, and baking soda) to change and shift the colors initially formed with the plant materials. We will use the created inks to explore the effects of layering and the resulting shifts in tonality. Participants will utilize their discoveries to design small works of abstract art and create a set of inks to take home.

Molly Holmlund is an artist living in White Salmon Washington. She has been making and painting with ink since discovering it three years ago. Ink making has combined two of her passions, nature and color, and has further developed her interest in nature’s connections. She has painted in many mediums, including murals, and watercolor, and loves to share this love of nature and art through workshops and summer camps.
