Alcohol Inks: Basics & Beyond

Alcohol Inks: Basics & Beyond with Teri Jones

Take advantage of the unique qualities of alcohol inks on non-porous surfaces and create exciting abstracts and realistic paintings on paper and tile. No previous experience is necessary – just a sense of adventure and a willingness to try new techniques. Focus on an illusion of control rather than control itself. You just might find that a mistake can morph into magical expressions!

This class is presented in collaboration with John C. Campbell Folk School and Lessonface. Class capacity is 12 students. Registration closes on October 10, 2023. Students are invited to attend a large group Orientation and Closing Ceremony to connect with various classes online.

I learned so much about alcohol inks - techniques, supplies to use, how to overcome my hesitancy to "just have fun."
