Suminagashi: Japanese Marbling

October 15, 2022 at 3:00 pm - October 22, 2022 at 5:00 pm

Saturday, October 15 ~ 3:00pm to 5:00pm EST
Saturday, October 22 ~ 3:00pm to 4:30pm EST

Japanese marbling is a form of printmaking that dates to the 12th century. Participants in this virtual workshop will learn to use ink, water, and brushes to create suminagashi designs in collaboration with the natural forces of fluid flow and air movement. These organic designs have a strong visual link to natural phenomena. Each class session will begin with a demonstration of marbling techniques, followed by time for participants to experiment with printing on paper and fabric. A materials list will be provided at registration for participants to source supplies; the materials cost will be approximately $50

This class will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
