February 25th, 2 - 4pm
NARS is pleased to invite Sophia Haas-Salmieri, of Thorns and Prickles, to lead a two-part workshop on Saturday, February, 25, 2-4pm. To start with, kids will work together with the instructor to make small batches of paper from recycled materials, learning the various steps and techniques involved in making paper.
In the second half of the workshop, kids will learn to create one of a kind prints using both Suminagashi (Japanese) and Ebru (Turkish) methods of marbling. Marbling on paper consists of ink or paint floated on water's surface.
Participants will take home both the handmade paper and the marbling print with instructions for drying the sheets.
