What you'll do

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.

Remote guests can join with kit delivery. See delivery section for details.
