Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
The night before the Paper lab workshop, Sarah Alden will host an informal, open evening of ink experimentation at Ptarmigan. We will play around with various materials - natural, recycled and household materials that can function as inks or dyes.
There is no registration required for this evening and no particular structure - feel free to turn up and bring anything that you might wish to experiment with (foods such as beetroot, spices such as turmeric, teas, wines and other products). Keep in mind the focus of the paper lab workshop, which is on developing inexpensive, sustainable methods of print communication that can be aesthetically pleasing as well.
And remember, if you wish to attend the workshop on Saturday, you must register here.
