Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
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.
