Inking Retreat


Inking Retreat

Step by Step classes throughout the weekend will teach you not only how to use ink but what each different ink is used for (pigment, dye, alcohol etc). You can create unique embellishments and backgrounds for your project, whether that be scrapbooking, card making, journalling or any other papercraft you are into.

After each session, you can then apply what you have learnt to your own craft project. Not only will you learn but you will create - the classes are only a part of the weekend.

Some of the techniques you will learn over this weekend are:
