Painting with Mushrooms

October 7 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$25 – $40

Maybe you’ve foraged, grown, or eaten mushrooms, but have you painted with them too? Many mushrooms and lichens can be used to make inks in a spectrum of earthy colors. Rachel Mirus will demonstrate the ink-making process and introduce some local lichens and mushrooms that produce color, then together we’ll experiment with making art from a selection of pre-made mushroom inks. Come try out these unusual materials and see what you can make!

Taught by teaching artist and science writer, Rachel Mirus. Materials will be provided.

Open to individual artists and families/groups – kids are welcome!
