Suminagashi Paper Marbling Workshops
Upcoming workshop dates & locations:
Oct. 12, 2017 at 10am to 2:30pm at Village Gallery of Arts, $65
Explore this fascinating Japanese paper marbling technique using water-based boku inks floated on plain tap water. The name suminagashi literally means spilled ink. Create intricate, patterned rice papers using this ancient method and then (in the two day session) learn how to use these papers to build gorgeous layered collages and finished paintings. Enjoy the meditative process of creating one-of-a-kind marbled papers. Designed for all levels of learners and no prior experience needed.
2 Day Acrylic Workshop:
From Marbled Paper to Finished Painting
We’ve all seen marbled papers, but how do we develop those busy patterned papers into a finished painting? Unlock the mystery and learn the techniques for creating layered, richly colored paintings by applying acrylics (both opaque and transparent) on pre-marbled papers. Previous painting experience recommended.
Sept 21 & 22, 2017 10am-4pm at Village Gallery of Arts
