I know that this is a little far in advance but these classes seem to fill up fast! I also won’t be available for some of the spring months in between now and then,
Through the Santa Fe Book Arts Group, we will 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. Then on Sunday, June 9, there will be a workshop on suminagashi & poetry from 9 am to 4 pm at the Santa Fe Community College, Room 710. The workshop is $75 and is only open to members of BAG. 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.
