Porthmeor Art Collective - Suminagashi

For young artists aged 13 – 16, this group helps young peo­ple con­nect with their cre­ativ­i­ty and get to know con­tem­po­rary art practices.

Work with Emma Saffy Wilson, to discover the unique Japanese art of Suminagashi, the art of painting on water. Using ink (sumi) that floats (nagashi) on water this ancient technique has been used to create beautiful papers for paintings, calligraphy and print.

Emma will guide you through the simple, gentle process and encourage you to mindfully experiment with pattern, form and colour to make a number of Suminagashi prints. You will then be given the opportunity to freely work on top of your prints using watercolour, pastel and pencil highlighting some of the abstract shapes within your work.
