Create a collection of decorative papers using the meditative method of suminagashi marbling. Dating back some 800 years, this Japanese technique floats ink pigments atop a liquid bath. With gentle manipulations — such as blowing across the surface of the water — and a good deal of spontaneity, patterns form and are transferred to paper. These papers will then be used to create a collection of handmade books stitched with variations of the Japanese stab binding. You'll leave this workshop with dozens of colorful sheets of marbled papers, four handbound books, and the resources to incorporate these projects into your own classroom.
