Takahama Fukui Japanese culture Sumi Art Workshop
Suminagashi, which means "floating ink" in Japanese, is a traditional form of paper marbling that has been passed down since ancient times. In this Art workshop, participants can experience the harmony between Suminagashi and Japanese calligraphy.
A unique pattern is created by dropping inks onto the surface of the water and then a sheet of washi paper is carefully laid onto the water surface to capture the floating design.
The artist can use subtle techniques to stir the colors in order to create their desired pattern, but as the inks are floating on water, the final pattern is created with an element of chance, resulting in a completely unique design that can never be duplicated.
To complete your unique piece of work, you can choose one of your favorite Japanese characters to complement your beautiful design. Experience the beauty of Japanese culture through Sumi (Japanese ink).
