THE BEST SUMI TOOLS
with CHRISTINE BURDINE
Saturday, August 25, 2018
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The elegance of Sumi-e lies in removing unnecessary information using meaningful strokes. That seems straightforward and obvious. But with all the brushes made from a variety of animal hairs, inks in dry cakes to be ground, wet inks, millions of rice and natural fiber papers, starting a lifestyle of sumi-e can seem overwhelming.
Christine Burdine has worked for many years with the art of sumi-e and teaches how to relax, and with a few well chosen tools, to start. She will work for two hours helping you and your friends feel comfortable relaxing at your table and making beautiful art with simplified stokes that create wonderful gestures and stories.
