Ever wondered what suminagashi actually is, or how to make one for yourself? Maternal Mitochondria (Isabel W.S. and Miriam Sagan) will be doing a hands-on demonstration this Saturday at the Japan Festival from 11am-3pm! Come and say hi, draw some sumi, all while eating delicious takoyaki. The festival is at the Convention Center and admission is $5 for adults, free for children under 12. The festival itself runs from 9:30am-5pm. See you there!
The Sumi-A-Day Tumblr is an ongoing art project by artist collective Maternal Mitochondria. Every day, a new piece of suminagashi! Suminagashi is a Japanese printing technique that creates unique monotype prints using ink and water. Maternal Mitochondria uses both traditional and modern materials and techniques. Suminagashi is related to Western marbling and Ebru techniques, but brings it’s own artistic merits to the table.
