Suminagashi 墨 流 し or “floating ink” is the process of marbling plain paper with water and ink. It originated in Japan as early as the 12th century.
Spend a day exploring this ancient art of Japanese marbling. Transform blank or printed sheets of paper and/or cloth into something beautiful. You will then have the opportunity to turn these decorated sheets into single section stitched booklets.
The bindery will be open by 9am. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be supplied. There will be a lunch break of 30 minutes. There is a fully equipped kitchen adjacent to the bindery if you wish to bring your lunch, but otherwise there are cafes and markets nearby.
