Suminagashi is a Japanese printmaking technique that you can read more about here. 3rd graders have been exploring suminagashi for several weeks. They started with some prints using only black ink, which they later used in a weaving project. While finishing their weavings students took turns at printing stations to try experiment with multi colored prints. We aren’t sure what we want to do with these yet. We thought about making paper beads, but they are really beautiful just as they are.
