This one day workshop is divided into parts. In the morning you will discover the magic of working with alcohol ink.  We will cover the properties of alcohol ink, play with the flow of the ink and gain an understanding of how the inks work together.  Students will create a landscape using techniques similar to those employed by June Rollins and Cathy Taylor.  Practice pieces will be created on Yupo paper and the final project will be created on ceramic tile.  This is a fun and playful workshop where the only limit is your imagination. No previous experience is required.

In part 2 you will learn how to create beautiful floral work using alcohol ink and compressed air. Create beautiful, fanciful flowers on Yupo paper and your final project on ceramic tile.  This is one of the most popular workshops. Bring your imagination and creativity.  No previous experience is required.
