Workshop : Alcohol Ink Jewelry

Whether you are a “creatively challenged” individual or an experienced artist, you will find new ways to express yourself with this fantastic medium and technique.

I will cover the basics of using alcohol inks. There will be a basic overview of the medium, and then we will go take what you’ve learned and create 4 unique pieces of jewelry to take home at the end of the class.

13+ and all skill levels welcome

Feel free to BYOB!

About the Instructor:

Emily was introduced to alcohol inks early in 2016, and was hooked immediately. She spent more than she is willing to disclose to her husband and created more tiles than she could give away. This led to her opening her Etsy store, You Made Me Ink Design (https://www.etsy.com/shop/YouMadeMeInkDesign) and displaying her work at a fall craft show. She is hopeful that 2018 brings more opportunities to share her art with new people!

HT After Dark :: Violent Bloom / LDYCP / ahsataN

Fall minitour f. Violent Bloom and LDYCP (Bloomington, IN). 

~ wsg~ ahsataN (beautifully dark songwriting, felt harmonies)

DETAILS:
18+
Doors at 9 p.m., $5

LDYCP - Six piece melodic rock / avant chamber pop, ft. "angelic yet angular" three part vocal arrangement (Bloomington, IN)

https://ldycp.bandcamp.com

"Hazy chamber-pop music à la St. Vincent. LDYCP takes the listener on all sorts of twists and turns, leaving one helluva first impression." - NUVO

"Haunting, exotic, unique and gorgeous are the four best words to describe the LP, which has us falling in love over and over again. This is only the start of great things." - Independent Music Buzz
-----------------------------

Violent Bloom - Chamber pop trio with winding harmonies and sick beats. (Toledo, OH)

https://violentbloom.bandcamp.com/

"Their specialty is subtlety. Expressive basslines weave and wave above minimalist percussive arrangements that are nevertheless effectively-swaying and pulsing; but that bass rhythm is like the sonic oreo cream, above the supportive drums but humming beneath the intricate piano and lead vocals." - Deep Cutz Music
