Suminagashi Workshop with Sarah Amatt

10am - 3pm    cost £95
The art of suminagashi, the Japanese form of paper marbling, is both compelling and intriguing. It dates back to the Heian period of Japan (794-1185) and is the precursor of all other marbling techniques. The workshop starts at 10 a.m. with coffee and a look at the history of suminagashi and what you need to get started. There will be demonstrations and plenty of opportunities to unleash your creativity and to ask questions! The aim is to help you acquire the necessary skills to create your own designs at home with an understanding of the materials, tools and process. Take home many sheets of paper covered in suminagashi for use in bookbinding and other paper arts. No previous art training is needed, just bring your curiosity!
Maximum of 6 participants.
The cost is £95 to include all materials and tuition plus refreshments.
