Get Ready for Inktober


Please note that masks are highly encouraged but not mandatory in workshops.

Workshop Description

Curious about learning to draw with ink? Or maybe you already do and would like to build on those skills? The permanency of ink can be a bit daunting to many, but it can also be a lot of fun and produce beautiful effects in your work. In this workshop we’ll try to take some of the mystery out of the process and learn how to approach ink drawing with intention and understanding.

About ‘Inktober’:

Illustrator Jake Parker created ‘Inktober’ in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavour with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year, to do an ink drawing a day for every day of October.
