Dylan will inspire you to get outdoors and forage for the ingredients to make your own art supplies.

This will keep you connected to nature, reinvigorate your creative process and cut down on the cost of art supplies.

Why buy a pen when you can whittle your own?!

Draw inspiring faces in natural ink.

What tools do I need to participate?

To try Dylan's specific techniques, you'll need a broad-edged calligraphy pen (and/or a whittled stick), ink or watercolor, a flat brush and paper that can handle wet media.

To create zero-waste art supplies from organic materials, we recommend a sharp pocket knife for whittling, sticks, cutting board, funnel, sieve and recycled jars.

In the class, Dylan will demonstrate how to make ink out of organic ingredients such as beetroot, frozen blueberries, turmeric, avocados, lemons, baking soda, vinegar and salt. You don't need these exact ingredients to make ink yourself. You can probably use ingredients you already have in the pantry or growing naturally in your neighborhood.
