Teens ages 13 through 17 can practice the art of Suminagashi, or paper marbling, at Garland’s Central Library on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m.
Suminagashi is a centuries-old floating ink technique that originated in Japan. It was commonly used in the bookmaking process in nineteenth-century Europe. The art is created by dropping special Japanese marbling ink into a tray of water. The ink will float on top of this water and can be mixed or manipulated without sinking. Paper can then be dipped into the water. The ink will adhere to the paper with very little smudging, resulting in a unique print every time the technique is used.
No registration is required to attend this event, which is open to teens ages 13 to 17. The Central Library is located at 625 Austin St., in Downtown Garland. Please be aware that photographs and video may be taken at Library programs for use in print and/or electronic media at the Library’s discretion. For more information on this program, please call 972-205-2516.
