JSB can help you coordinate a workshop for your group by providing the ingredients kits as well as instructions.

Pricing is negotiable depending on the number of participants.


Decorate paper in a traditional Japanese fashion by learning the art of suminagashi! Roughly translated as “floating ink,” suminagashi is the art of paper marbling where water and ink are used to produce beautiful, cloudy patterns.

Our workshop includes a presentation about the history and origins of suminagashi as well as the materials to create your own versions to take home.

Pricing is flexible based on the scope of your event.
