Details of event:

This 2-day online art workshop has been designed for you to access over Zoom to learn how to do paper marbling at home!

Learn how to do marbling art with your photography in this online suminagashi workshop. Use your own photographs, or traditional fine art papers to experiment with adding this visual texture to your photographic imagery.

The Japanese technique of water marbling or “floating ink” first originated in China, and was then adopted and developed further in Japan. The suminagashi marbling technique is an ancient meditative process that emphasizes mindfulness, slowing down, and the value of imperfection known as wabi sabi.

Visual artist Solange Roberdeau will introduce the main materials such as suminagashi ink and suitable papers such as Japanese Kozo. Next, you’ll learn how to use marbling inks and learn a variety of approaches for creating your own unique suminagashi art prints during each Zoom session. Afterward, you can dive right in and experiment with the process.

Solange will provide a suminagashi materials list of the materials necessary for how to do water marbling, which can be purchased online before the start of the workshop. Basic materials include: Aitoh-Boku-Undo Suminagashi Marbling Ink (the best ink for suminagashi), a bottle of wetting agent, a calligraphy brush, some Kozo paper, and basic mark-making tools such as sticks, feathers, toothpicks, etc.

At the end of the online art workshop, you’ll have experience in wabi sabi for artists, made samples that show each step of the suminagashi paper marbling technique, and of course your own suminagashi art!
