I first had the pleasure of meeting Naomi at the Potager Gardens, in Cornwall, after one of her Creative Roots workshops. Curious as always, I was keen to learn of what she had been making as she packed away her mysterious potions. At this particular workshop Naomi was teaching the ancient art of Botanical Ink making, where I bought my first pot, intrigued by the simplicity and excited to see how far I could push it as a Botanical Artist using my own methods. Since then I have taught a number of Botanical Illustration Workshops using the Creative Roots ink and we now sell it at the shop in Falmouth.
Introducing Naomi Hannam the founder of Creative Roots.
I use craft, nature connection and coaching to support people to connect with the abundance of nature, the strength of community and the beauty of creativity. From an early age my passion and love of the outdoors found me sleeping under the stars, adventuring with little in my pack and making from only what is in the natural world. It is this creativity, simplicity, awe and wonder that I strive to share through my business Creative Roots.

We have been using Naomi's Botanical Inks, made from Oak Gall at our workshops. With every small and unique batch offering a slightly different variant of colour it's always exciting to see what's coming next. We have a fresh set that has just arrived in the Creative Roots signature style bottles, available through Botanical Atelier for £12
