Instructor: Natalie Stopka Suminagashi is the Japanese art of marbling by floating ink on the surface of water. In this one day intensive, students learn the basics of this centuries-old monoprint technique, including the tools and materials it requires and the ideology shaping suminagashi practice up to the present. Students will develop a suite of patterns on paper and fabric using the natural forces of wind, vibration, and chemical interaction. Small studies will be expanded upon in our large 4x4’ marbling vat, where students will have the opportunity to print yardage with their unique patterns! Materials will be provided by TAC, but feel free to bring up to 1 additional yard of natural fiber fabric to experiment with! -- Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. This One Day Class does not come with Open Studio time.
