Just in time for Easter, learn how to use an ancient Japanese marbling technique to decorate paper and eggs with beautiful swirling colors!

Suminagashi, or “ink-floating” originated in Japan as early as AD 1112. It involves applying inks to the surface of water with brushes, carefully manipulating the inks and water to produce different patterns, then transferring the ink to an absorbent surface such as paper (or eggs!) by simply dipping the material into the water. 

Children will have the opportunity to play with this unique and mesmerizing coloring technique and add collage materials, paints, markers, and stamps to their print and egg creations. After we’re done decorating, we will have a big egg hunt in the studio! 

All workshop materials are included.

Art is a messy business; please dress appropriately. Close-toed shoes are recommended.

This workshop is suitable for children ages three and up. Parents are encouraged to participate in the workshop with their children. We ask that any child under the age of seven be accompanied by a parent.

Ticket sales end Thursday, April 18th, 11:59PM. Limited number of tickets available. One ticket admits one child and parent. Please purchase additional $5 ticket for each additional child planning to attend.
