In this hands-on art session, you will discover what an oak gall is, how to find one, and how to create iron oak gall ink—the ink used by scribes to write the Torah and other Jewish holy books—which is harvested from galls growing on Louisiana oak trees. Learn about the history of this medieval ink and how it relates to my search as an artist for a more sustainable art practice as I create artwork about living in a time of global warming, and specifically what this means to those of us living in Southern Louisiana. You will also create you own pen from bamboo and leave with a small bottle of your own handmade ink.
