Virtual Sumi-e Wet Mounting Workshop December

December 5 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join us for a special one-day workshop with Sumi-e expert Patricia Larkin Green Sensei on Wet Mounting.

Hyougu (表具) : The ancient eastern craft of mounting pieces of calligraphy, paintings, or other works of art in order to preserve and display them.

Workshop Description:

Introduction to the Contemporary technique of “Wet Mounting”.

Mount your artwork or a blank sheet of paper for a direct painting. Traditional Sumi-e, Shodo and Suiboku-ga papers become wavy and uneven artwork after they dry. Most Western Frame shops are not accustomed to framing this style of work, so artists may need to know how to smooth, mount and frame their work on their own.

If you prefer to watch the demonstration and NOT participate in the hands-on activity, you will not need the mounting materials described in the attachments.

If you have any questions or want to share the work you plan to mount, please email patricia@patricialarkingreen.com.
