Alcohol Ink Workshop for Beginners
Alcohol Ink - 101 Your introduction to Alcohol Inks and all the fun you can have!
During this ridiculously fun and easy 3 hour workshop you will learn a little about alcohol inks and the exciting things you can create with them.
Ever seen kids playing with paint and ink with abandon? This is just like that, but for grown ups!
You'll see the ink play on specially-created "yupo" paper and also on glass. You'll make three different designs on this special paper by dropping ink on it! And then the fourth piece you'll make will be on glass. It's so amazing. You simply won't believe how fabulous this stuff is and how simply you can make amazing art!
Its mezmerising watching it swirl, run and explode when mixed with the pure alcohol on the surface of the paper.
Please wear a warm short of top, as Alcohol Inks are a little smelly, so we’ll be keeping the space well ventilated during this workshop. And please don’t wear your best clothes, this is a messy (but delightful!) art form.
You'll leave with one of your masterpieces framed and ready to hang in your home or to give to a friend as a gift which will be treasured for a lifetime.
Included in the cost is:
- all the advice and help I can share
- everything you need
- a wide selection of alcohol inks and lustres (glittery bits!)
- everything you'll need - disposable gloves, brushes, alcohol solutions,
- use of my Studio tools as required
- Yopu paper
- glass for your artwork
- the box frame for your final design
This workshop offers you - and maybe your bestie? - an enjoyable experience in a creative, fun and safe environment where you’ll produce a beautiful, original framed alcohol ink piece to keep.
If you can't see a date to suit you and your friends, please email us and we will create a date to suit your diary and ours. (Some of the images that you see here were taken during an Alcohol Ink event at a Hen's Weekend - they had a few glasses of wine, too.)
I run this workshop from 2 locations, my private studio in Swan Street Richmond and at "345AC" in Mont Albert. I can even run this workshop in your location as well if you like: it's a great team-building exercise.
Should you want to make something bigger than the Yupo Paper please let me know and I'll purchase some larger boards on your behalf.
You can see a 40cm x 40cm board finished here. If you'd like to make a larger piece on a board lease let me know 2 weeks before your workshops, as I need to order and collect the boards for you - firstname.lastname@example.org. A small extra cost will be levied.
I'll email you by return email the prices and sizes of boards available: there are actually loads of sizes and shapes in both black and white for you to choose from. Apparently triangles will be available sometime during 2021, but at the moment you can have squares, rectangles and circles.
I can't wait to play with Alcohol Inks with you!

Vendor since 2016
I’m like a kid in a lolly shop. I am endlessly impressed and inspired – by the work of others, by colours and textures, by everything around me, man-made and natural!
There’s so much to see, to interpret into glass!
I love it all. I love sharing it with everyone – that’s why I run workshops – it makes me happy and its my hope that some of this joy spills over to you as well.
I love my job.
You too can create graphic Mondrian-inspired bowls and platters and feminist invoking “Break The Glass Ceiling” pendants, brooches and sometimes earrings in these workshops. You can create an artwork for your walls in the fabulous Heart Art Class.
I love the clash of sometimes crazy and sometimes controlled geometry, that can see in my Paris Elegance series with its DNA centre design element. I suspect they indulge both the conservative and bold characteristics within. These styles can be explored more in the Level 2 classes.
The relationship between the glass elements in each piece means no two pieces are exactly alike, much as no story is ever retold in exactly the same way, so is every piece of glass you create in a workshop. You can truly say, no-one else, anywhere, has one quite like it! You'll also remember that giving a Gift Voucher is another uniuqe gift that expresses the value of your unique friendship.
Ultimately, I am sharing love. The love of life. Share it with me?
If you book into an event and miss it, we can't reschedule or refund the tickets after the fact.
Our classes take careful planning, seats are limited and we cut the glass and prepare the studio based on the number of people. I run a small business and my margins are very tight.
My standard class fees include a $40 non-refundable, non-transferable administration fee, which is forfeited if a student cancels their enrolment or transfers to another class session. Students who cancel or transfer their enrollment six or more business days prior to the beginning of a class will receive a refund of the class fee, minus the $40 administration fee. Cancellations or transfers made fewer than six business days prior to commencement of class will be refunded or transferred only if we are able to fill the student’s space (minus the $40 administration fee). No refunds or transfers will be granted once the class has started.
- If there is a last-minute change in plans (less than 12 hours' notice), then sorry you forfeit the ticket.
- Alternatively you can send a friend along and they can use the ticket in your name.
- From time to time we need to cancel an event, in this instance we will notify you by email and text your mobile as well. We automatically transfer you into the next event, but you can request a alternative date, hopefully within the next 3 months.
