Create your own sketchbook in this two part workshop. Join teaching artist Hayley Ferber to learn the magical and zen process of the Japanese art of Suminagashi Paper Marbling. Surrender control and watch as the color dances on water and embeds itself into the paper for a surprising and unpredictable result. Use your newly marbled paper to bind a 4x6" sketchbook with a wrap around paper cover creating a unique long stitch pattern.

Ages 15 and up welcome!
