There is only one spot left in our upcoming class on suminagashi & poetry, June 9th, from 9 am to 4 pm at the Santa Fe Community College. The workshop is $75 and is only open to members of the Santa Fe Book Arts Group. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact BAG directly.
This workshop will teach each participant to create suminagashi, Japanese-inspired marbling on paper. We will work with low-impact materials—water trays, ink, and inexpensive paper. We will also create poetry based on “weathergrams”—short poems about the environment and our inner selves. The workshop will be structured so that text and marbling can be combined for a final product. You will have pieces to take home that can be collaged, used in bookmaking, or hung as ephemera to weather out into the atmosphere. All materials will be provided, but if you would like to bring your own supplies please refer to our earlier guide.
We will also be presenting on our work as Maternal Mitochondria on Saturday, June 8, 2019, 1 pm to 3 pm in the Santa Fe Community College Boardroom. This is free and open to the public.
