Suminagashi Ink Marbling
Suminagashi ink marbling is an ancient Japanese technique of decorating paper with inks. Its name literally means “ink-floating,” as it uses the surface tension of water to suspend inks in intricate rings and swirls, which can be transferred to paper to create completely unique works of art each and every time.
Sean will be teaching the technique and will demonstrate the proper way to drop inks, create patterns, and lift a decent print. Inks, paper, and all necessary supplies will be provided.
Come learn this zen art form practiced by Shinto priests since the 12th century!
