In this creative workshop with Wild Dot, participants will be guided to make some inks and paints from pigments they notice on-site and document the process in the form of a mini zine. Wild Dot is an ink-making studio that makes paints and artworks with locally found and grown plant pigments.


Held in conjunction with the exhibition Simryn Gill and Charles Lim Yi Yong: The Sea is a Field, this workshop invites participants to learn the art of ink-making using plant species found at reclaimed areas in Changi.
