Iron Gall Ink Demonstration

February 15 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Iron Gall Ink, made from commonplace oak galls, iron, and tree sap, was the ubiquitous and indelible European writing ink for centuries. Join Natalie Stopka in a live online demonstration of ink making, during which we’ll discuss the particularly entrancing visual and chemical properties of this richly-colored writing and drawing medium. Natalie’s recipes, foraging guidelines, and alternate ingredients will be shared. Q+A will follow the presentation.

This demonstration will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
