For my own part, I will be teaching a one-day intensive in Japanese
suminagashi paper marbling which will cover both tradition and
contemporary styles. We will work with traditional colors, including
traditional sumi ink sticks ground on a suzuri ink stone and a
contemporary line made by the Boku Undo company. In addition to the
basic traditional formats, we will try different papers, experiment
with block-out or resists, over marbling, and other mixed media
applications. Relevant literature will also be shared.
In addition I will present a thorough historical overview of marbling
in East Asia, which features a truly dazzling array of images of
suminagashi from important manuscripts in various collections around
the world. These manuscripts feature a wide variety of applications of
suminagashi in the context of manuscript production (the ORIGINAL
"mixed media" format!). This presentation will include the oldest
datable examples of marbled paper known, Heian period paintings that
incorporate marbling, marbled paper used as a support for ukiyo-e
prints by the 18th c master Harunobu, as well as works like the Freer
Tale of Genji.
Space in my workshop is limited to just 10 individuals, and slots are
Also if you wish to participate in the exhibition, you must register
and send your materials by March 22nd!
I hope to see you there!
