20160308 Walnut Husk Ink & Book Binding
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 from 6:30-8:00pm
In this workshop we will be cooking down walnut husks that were collected from the tree Caitlin climbed as a child (She still climbs it when she goes to visit her Mom)- and making our own drawing ink. We will also be binding rag paper into small books using linen thread and covering them with soft covers.
You will go home with a vial of your own ink and a book you bound yourself!
