Natural Ink Workshop

Notify me when this product is available:

Come and enjoy using handmade inks from items you will find in your kitchen.

Kelly will be using inks made of onion skins, avocado pits and more to explore and appreciate the array of natural colours.
We will also use colour modifiers found in our kitchen pantry to make an ever expanding colour palette.
This workshop is accessible for all ages, no experience necessary.

Each participant will walk away with an array of abstract artworks and a small booklet with handy tips and recipes.

Want to continue exploring Art at home?

Kelly will have her Watercolour Starter Kits available to purchase, giving you everything you need to continue your watercolour play!

 Kit includes:

  • Set of watercolour paints
  • Paintbrush
  • Grey lead pencil
  • Eraser
  • A5 watercolour paper pad


Melbourne based mixed media artist, Kelly Basford has been honing her craft from the day she could delicately grasp a brush in her hand. She draws inspiration from the beauty and wonder of the natural world, particularly the vastness and magic of the stars and constellations that paint the sky and the beauty and delicateness of the flowers and plants all around us. Kelly works with a wide range of art mediums, but has a love for acrylics and watercolour, to convey the space and stillness within her finished works.

When she is not painting or teaching classes she enjoys spending precious time with her husband and young son, going for walks or cooking at home.
