SUMINAGASHI WORKSHOP

The October workshop will be offered on two days and taught by our member from Portland, Jackie Wygant. Because space is limited, you must register in advance. As of 9/30 there are three spaces open on Friday and the Saturday workshop has filled. Suminagashi is the oldest and simplest form of marbling in which inks are floated on water, then gently manipulated into floating veins of color. This technique should not be confused with combed and patterned marbling of later periods.

You will learn basic techniques: how to float colors on a liquid, apply and manipulate the colors to make patterns, lay the paper on the liquid, and how to preserve your creation. You will use multi-color acrylic marbling inks to make numerous sheets of beautiful paper to use for book arts, box making, cards, collage, etc. In the afternoon you will learn multi-brush, two hand technique, and double loading of a single brush, as well as paper laying and frisket variations.
Be sure to bring your lunch as there will be a one-hour break.
