Michelle will demonstrate the art of Suminagashi, also known as Japanese Marbling, guiding you through the process step-by-step, before creating your own beautiful marbled papers.

Relaxed class learning a mindful, ancient craft using beautiful, textured paper. Teacher was knowledgeable and passionate about her work, teaching at a pace flexible to the small class. Beautiful setting of the class in a paper store added to the feeling of being connected with the community.
