Eco-inking in the Garden

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Discover the colours of the Wayi Community Garden, for playful, sensory eco-inking. Join artist Annie Bolitho for a simple, mindful and creative activity that’s perfect for adults and kids. We’ll explore natural pigments - plants, barks and earth and experience the magic of applying colours to paper. Amazing possibilities await as we learn how to produce waste-free eco-inks from our gardens. 

Participants should bring along a sunhat and a feather, a stick or a bit of bark to work with. Places to this event are strictly limited. If you are no longer able to attend the event, please let us know by emailing so that we can pass your ticket on to another keen participant! 

About your host

Annie Bolitho is a writer and artist who is inspired by transience, change and play. She works with materials found on the lands of Naarm. Her versatile community story/arts projects, natural pigment and small book workshops find a place wherever people gather – in libraries, gardens, neighbourhood centres, on the banks of rivers and in parks.


This is an outdoor event in a garden with uneven surfaces including crushed gravel, compacted granitic sand, mulch, grass and concrete pathways.

This workshop forms part of the Coburg Community Garden Festival Program and is a My Smart Garden event proudly presented by Merri-bek City Council on the unceded land of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people of the Kulin nation. My Smart Garden pays our respect to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledges that First Nations peoples have cared for Country sustainably for tens of thousands of years.
