Registration is now open for an alcohol ink workshop set to take place on Saturday, April 21, at Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts.

Titled, “Making Exciting Fluid Beauty,” the 18-and-over workshop is led by Portland artist Margaret de Haas van Dorsser, known nationally for her beautiful landscape designs. Dorsser has explored many forms of art and says her recent interest in alcohol inks has sent her on a journey to create art that is more free and fluid.

Alcohol ink, a vibrant and breathtaking medium, opens a new and wonderful fluid art form for artists of all levels. Alcohol inks come in a wide range of colors that can be used on many mediums such as glass, metal, tile, ceramic and paper.

Students will create one-of-a-kind works of art on tile and also experiment with alcohol ink on Yupo, a new type of plastic paper. Each participant will go home with a kit and several finished pieces.

The workshop will meet from 10 am to 4 pm. Tuition is $45 plus a $40 materials fee.

All materials are included, and students are encouraged to bring a paint shirt or apron to protect clothing, and gloves to prevent hands from staining. The deadline for registration is Monday, April 16.
