Event description
Wysing studio artist Robert Foster will lead a short course on Suminagashi, a Japanese paper marbling technique.

About this Event

Learn how to create beautiful unique prints by floating ink on water to form dynamic patterns.

Also known as “floating ink”, Suminagashi (墨 流 し), is a traditional art form that originates from 12th Century Japan and is used to create ornate, dynamic patterns. The earliest form of paper marbling, Suminagashi is a meditative and organic process that uses a simple set of materials to create incredible results!

In the session participants will learn the materials required to create Suminagashi prints and a set of different techniques to create a range of effects. Together, we will explore how to dry and press the papers for crafting or to enjoy as finished prints and ideas for how to use your papers once dry and pressed. 

By the end of the workshop participants will have the skills to produce your very own designs at home. You will also have created a set of your own prints to take away with you.

Materials: All materials will be provided for you, but marbling can be messy. Please wear old clothes, or bring an apron, just in case!

Format: One-off 3 hour introductory workshop.

Dates available: 10.30–13.30pm, Monday 24 February, Monday 9 March or Monday 23 March.

Fees: £50 per introductory class.
