Paper Marbling

(Artistic Workshop)

Paper Marbling is an ancient Japanese artform which involves capturing impressions of ink and color by the floating ink technique. It is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone.

If you’ve ever wanted to try an expressive art form with a mind of its own, paper marbling, or Suminagashi (墨 流 し), as it was called by the ancient Japanese when they invented it in the 12th Century, might just be the artform for you. The vibrant and colorful artforms represent every personality; Spontaneous, abstract, random, detail-oriented, improvisational or super-patient.

Everybody is welcome to come and try out this super-fun workshop, where every participant will be taught the technique and then given two attempts to marble a sheet, which they can then take home!

Don’t miss out on this spectacular opportunity to learn something new for absolutely free!
