Suminagashi Marbling

Sundays / 4pm - 6pm
Cost: $49 / $179 for 4 Classes

Suminagashi (sue-me-NAH-gah-she) comes from the Japanese words “sumi” meaning ink and “nagashi” meaning floating. The ancient form of Japanese marbling dates back over 800 years. Colored inks are floated on a bath of clear water and then gently manipulated into delicate and serendipitous patterns, unlike Western traditions of paper marbling with many more ingredients and standardized patterns. Paper is carefully laid on top of the water to absorb the colors and then lifted.

This is a form of mono-printing where no two prints will be exactly the same.
