Suminagashi translated means floating black ink. It is the ancient meditative Japanese practice of gently floating pigments on the surface of water with a brush and then capturing the mono print image on an absorbent paper. This exciting 3-hour workshop will present historical background and introduce the time honored technique and several artistic possibilities. Recommended for beginners. Limit of 8. All supplies provided.
Class topics include:
• Review of Suminagashi patterns with samples of optional papers
• Discuss historical background of Japanese paper marbling
• Review of supplies and preparation
• Suminagashi demo
• Student practice of line control with individual coaching
Each student will leave with at least 10 beautiful Suminagashi images and gain enough experience to continue their own practice.
Pamela Martinez has been teaching, studying and practicing the ancient art of marbling over ten years and is a member of the Sumi-E Society. Ms. Martinez provides Suminagashi instruction at the Botanic Garden in Glencoe, workshops for the Sumi-E Society, Gilda’s Club and individual lessons.
