This hands-on, live demonstration lets you observe, focus, and relax as you practice traditional Japanese marbling techniques.

Suminagashi - the art of "floating ink" - is a Japanese technique that uses plain paper as a transfer material for calligraphy ink that floats in swirls on the surface of water.

For hundreds of years, the art of Suminagashi has been used to mimic beautiful patterns found on natural marble stone. In this deeply meditative virtual experience, you too will create mesmerizing pieces while learning more about Japanese culture and traditions.

The event runs for an hour and all materials can be shipped globally.

The whole team was very organized. The planning was very easy, and love how they were incorporating Japanese culture into the experience. It was educational, meditative and 100% fun.




I was surprised at how meditative this experience was. I felt relaxed and crafty at the same time. I highly recommend it. The host was very thoughtful and engaging.
