Sunday Club - Suminagashi
Mixed Media - Materials included
For children aged 7-10, this is a Kids Art Club like no other, where children get to work on easels and use the same high art quality materials as our adult courses. They are taught by experienced artist tutors and start to take their first steps as Young Artists.
Work with Emma Saffy Wilson, to discover the unique Japanese art of Suminagashi, the art of painting on water. This ancient ink and water 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 shapes that emerge in your work.
We are happy to continue offering limited FREE Scholarship places for those on low income. Please contact Cat Lee Youth Arts Manager for a Scholarship application form to apply email@example.com.

Emma Saffy Wilson
Saffy studied Multi Media at Plymouth College of Arts and Studio Ceramics at Falmouth. She is intrigued by natural raw materials and has been exploring soil and mould in her practice, looking at context and how that changes the ‘value’ of artworks, aswell as traditional Japanese printing techniques.
She has worked as a freelance community artist since graduating in 2000, delivering arts projects in a variety of settings, from galleries and colleges to more community-based settings. She enjoys working with her groups at Carefree and Trelya to encourage disengaged young people who would not normally engage with the arts to develop their creative skills.
