Claremont Studio Exhibition Invitation

Tracey Johnston is exhibiting new paintings inspired by Andalusia and hosting a series of creative workshops at Claremont Studio as part of North East Open Studios, 10-18th September.

You and your guests are invited to the launch party on Saturday 10th September, from 2-5pm where Tracey will be demonstrating the art of Suminagashi Monoprinting.

Creative Workshops:

Paper Marbling- Simple Suminagashi Monoprinting

Sunday 11th September, 2 to 4pm.
Tuesday 13th September, 2 to 4pm and 7 to 9pm.
Suitable for beginners, materials supplied and complimentary refreshments. £35

The word 'Suminagashi' translates literally as 'spilled ink' and centuries before the art of marbling paper was practiced in western cultures, Japanese craftsmen created patterns by floating ink on the surface of water and transferring it to a sheet of paper. Because the nature of water is ever changing and constantly moving, Suminagashi printers are viewed as great masters of control. Each monoprint is like a fingerprint - unique and unreproduceable.

This workshop will teach you the art of Suminagashi and you will produce many different monoprints to use for end papers and covers in our creative Bookbinding course or for other creative paper crafts at home.

Creative Bookbinding

Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September, 2 to 4pm.
Suitable for beginners, materials supplied and complimentary refreshments. £35
Use your beautifully marbled papers as book covers and end papers in our Bookbinding Workshop.
In this workshop you will learn how to make your own folded keepsake book using various papers, book board and ribbon.

North East Open Studios runs this year from 10th to 18th September.
Claremont Studio is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.
