Home Made Inks

Sarah Poland

I went to an event at the excellent GS Artists in Swansea’s High Street last weekend, featuring the artist Sarah Poland at the end of her recent residency. I loved her work, mostly on paper – some of it huge- and using her own home-made oak gall ink. It’s similar in colour and texture to my home-made walnut ink. Both inks are permanent and according to Sarah, oak-gall ink was used to write the Magna Carta and that was 800 years ago.

Of course I had to have a scribble.
