#4017 Suminigashi Paper Marbling, with Anne Covell - afternoon session, Dec 9

$ 75.00

Come learn the ancient art of Japanese paper marbling at BookArtsLA! Suminigashi, or "floating ink," was practiced in Japan for centuries before it was adopted in the Western world. Using two sumi-e brushes, ink is distributed into a vat of water in concentric circles. As more ink is added, patterns emerge that mimic the qualities of moving water. By playing with color and different weight papers, we'll make printed papers that range from subtle to vibrant. This class is the perfect choice for those wanting to make elegant cover papers for their books or even wrapping papers for the holidays. 

Afternoon Session - Sunday, December 9 from 1 pm to 4 pm

Fee: $75 plus $25 materials fee
