      Foraging with an Artist

      Join Artist, Jane Marsching on the trails at Fruitlands for this interactive exploration of natural inks and the ink-making process.

      As one of this season’s Artists in Residence, Jane Marsching is creating large scale banners with ink she made from plant materials foraged from the Fruitlands forest and printed on Tyvek. The banners feature quotes from authors in our Transcendentalist archives as well as utopian thinkers from the mid-nineteenth century and today. These banners will hang in trees through the landscape and connect the cultural landmarks of the Museum with its trail system. In this program, discover Marsching’s process for foraging materials and creating her ink. We will stroll the trails, seeking barks, pine cones, and acorns. Next, Marsching will demonstrate how she takes these materials and uses a solar oven installed on the porch on the Fruitlands Farmhouse to extract tree tannins and create her inks.

      Please note that space in this program is limited and pre-registration is required. 

      This program is presented as part of Art Week 2020. Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek is an annual award-winning innovative festival featuring almost 600 unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. We are thrilled to be participating again this year!
