Workshops to learn how to make inks out of plants, for drawing, painting, dying and screenprinting.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all workshops are cancelled until further notice.

Throughout the year, I offer vegetal inks workshops at my place, in Lyon (France) or in other places (shops, artistic venues, schools, etc.). 

Workshops are practice-based but I also teach theory and historical content about vegetal colors (content described below). 

I prefer to work with small groups 5/10 people so that everyone can practice autonomously.

Workshops in French, English and Portuguese

I am fluent in these languages !​

Possibility to organize workshops in France & abroad

I can come to your place with my own material if needed and possible. I usually bring different plants but it is also possible to use local plans that grow in the surrounding area. I can easily travel to Switzerland. In other countries it's better if it comes with some another opportunity, like an art exhibition in your place..

Different formats

I can adapt the workshop to your needs. It can be a 4 hours workshop or 7 hours, to include screenprinting with vegetal inks. 2 day workshops are also possible.

Please feel free to reach me here.
