Freya Gabie is resident artist for the Raw Materials project and will lead a class exploring the ancient 12th century art of Suminagashi.

This type of printing translates as “floating ink” in Japanese, and uses inks to create beautiful marble designs on paper.

Gabie’s new work ‘The Weepers’, inspired by a history of making black funeral crepe on the Lea, is part of the current Raw Materials exhibition at the Nunnery Gallery and draws on similar watery drawing techniques. A range of coloured inks immersed in water will be used to create unique and spectacular designs.

There are 15 places available. Book a free ticket here

This event is supported by Bow Arts Trust and Arts & Culture at Queen Mary University of London.
