Together we make some natural inks and use these for screen printing with pre-prepared screens. In this way you learn the do’s and don’ts of natural ink making and go home with various screen-printed samples on paper and textiles. This could be the start of your own ink production.

Ilse Versluijs is a visual artist, technician and teacher at the Grafische Werkplaats. She is also the coordinator of the new dye garden of the Grafische Werkplaats.
