Suminagashi in the Railyard Park

Suminagashi in the Park

August 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm MDT

This free workshop will teach participants to create Suminagashi, Japanese inspired paper marbling. We will work with low impact materials—water trays and ink. Participants will also create poetry based on “weathergrams”—short poems about the environment and our inner selves.

Once the workshop is over, the suminagashi and text will be curated into a show – installed in hidden, but findable locations in the Railyard Park. The pathway will be geocached, and locatable by GPS and by map. The work will be presented anonymously—and the paper and text may have two different authors. All participants will be listed and thanked as part of the pathway, and on website:https://maternalmitochondria.com/

There will be an informal opening in mid-September, where you can walk the park and share it with your friends. It’s a magical way to respond to a special spot in Santa Fe.

Maternal Mitochondria is a mother-daughter collaborative duo composed of writer Miriam Sagan and multimedia artist Isabel Winson-Sagan. Since 2014 they have been working together in venues ranging from the Herekeke studio on Lama Mountain north of Taos, New Mexico to SIM house in Reykjavik, Iceland.

To register: email msagan1035@aol.com with your phone number & email.
Limited to 15-20 participants.
Priority will be given to kids under 18, and anyone accompanying them.
