Create a collection of decorative papers using the meditative method of suminagashi marbling. Dating back some 800 years, this Japanese technique floats ink pigments atop a liquid bath. With gentle manipulations — such as blowing across the water’s surface — and a good deal of spontaneity, patterns form and are transferred to paper. These papers are then be used to create a collection of handmade books stitched with variations of the Japanese stab binding. Leave this workshop with dozens of colorful sheets of marbled paper and four handbound books. The class is open to all skill levels, and alll materials are provided.
