‘Alcohol Ink Art’ Tutorial Kit



Our new Tutorial Kits are your ‘Workshop in a Box’!
They are perfect for combating boredom, learning something new or expanding your creative skills.

The idea behind these boxes is that you’ll be able to experience a workshop without needing any technology (whilst I’m thankful for it, sometimes I feel I need to just ‘switch off’) and very little (or nothing else!), other than what’s in the box, to complete the lesson/project. All from the comfort of your own home.

New boxes will be released regularly and we are also looking into launching boxes later in the year with video links so you can learn more in depth/technical skills.

Our tutors have many years experience in their chosen mediums, in most cases over 15 years.

These boxes also make fabulous gifts!


Did you know that by purchasing one of these boxes you are not only supporting our Australian small business, you are also supporting numerous Aussie businesses. We do our best to support Australian businesses ourselves (and in particular Aussie Small Biz). Our printing is done through our local printer, stickers and tissue paper are sourced through an Aussie small biz, boxes are also made and sold right here in Australia. 95% of the materials/equipment in this box are also sourced/purchased through Australian businesses.





Do you want to learn how to create beautiful alcohol ink artworks?  This tutorial kit is for you!

In this box you’ll find a comprehensive 22 page tutorial booklet in which Leanne will show you all of her tips and tricks (learned over many years) for creating fabulous artworks with alcohol inks.
She’ll explain how you can use using air and alcohol to produce design effects, how the inks react with each other and other solutions, give you the basics on colour theory and how that applies to working with inks plus she will explain how to protect your works of art.
Leanne and Dani are both big advocates for creating safely and as such there is comprehensive information within this tutorial on the safety aspects of working with alcohol inks.


Skill Level:
This project/kit is for students of all skill levels and is catered specifically to beginners.
