What's Included

Instructor: Natalie Stopka, www.nataliestopka.com In this two session class, students will learn the basics of the Japanese marbling technique suminagashi. We’ll discuss the history and ideology shaping suminagashi, as well as the tools and materials it requires. Students will learn how to create and pull suminagashi monoprints on paper and fabric, and leave with the skills to continue exploring on their own. 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 class doesn't include access to free Open Studio. Evening Series classes are introductory classes great for getting a crash course in the textile arts. Evening Series classes do not come with free open studio time.

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 


Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
