Learn how to do marbling art with your photography in this online suminagashi marbling workshop. Use your own photographs (printed on Kozo), or experiment with traditional Japanese fine art papers to add this visual texture to your photographic imagery.
The Japanese technique of water marbling or “floating ink” first originated in China, and was then adopted and developed further in Japan. The suminagashi marbling technique is an ancient meditative process that emphasizes mindfulness, slowing down, and the value of imperfection.
Visual artist Solange Roberdeau will introduce the main materials such as suminagashi marbling inks and suitable papers such as Japanese Kozo. Next, you’ll learn how to use marbling inks and learn a variety of approaches for creating your own unique suminagashi marbling art prints during each Zoom session. Afterward, you can dive right in and experiment with the process.
