Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 6 pm.  503-693-0401

 All printing supplies provided, but students to gather fresh, un-pressed leaves or weeds, such as maple, fern etc. the morning of the class.


Limit of 12 students

Join artist and author Marilyn Wold to explore the beauty of printing plant leaves, stems and weeds on different paper types. You will gather a bunch of leaves (5-6) before the class, and bring them to share in our workshop with Marilyn. There you will learn her methods of capturing the images of those flora to make prints that reflect Oregon on a summer’s day.

Marilyn has authored a beautiful book illustrating plants used by early Polynesians, and we will use those illustration ideas to make our own Northwestern based images. In her long career as an artist and paper maker, Marilyn has taught extensively and has exhibited her art all over the world. Many of the stories and techniques we will learn will be gleaned from her experiences living and making art in Hawaii using native plants to make the paper and to print the plants’ images. The methods we will use in this 3-hour workshop will borrow from those techniques, and Marilyn will share with us some of her very special paper.

Example of suminagashi process

Thursday, July 18
11 am – 2 pm
–All supplies provided

Limit of 12 students.
Join artist and author Marilyn Wold as she returns to Sequoia Gallery + Studios to share the fun and beauty of creating suminagashi paper prints. Suminagashi is the Japanese term for the process where sumi ink is floated on the surface of clean water, then transferred to a sheet of paper. Each resulting monoprint will be as unique as a finger print, unreproducible.

Marilyn is the author of a book about handmade paper illustrating plants used by the early Polynesians. She made the paper for the books and each page displays the image of the plant used to create that sheet of paper.  Marilyn is an artist and paper maker who has taught and exhibited her work all over the world. She often employed suminagashi printing on paper she created in her own studio (in Hawaii and the northwest). Marilyn has been featured in other paper maker’s books and on instructional DVD’s about paper making. For this class, we are fortunate to be able to see some of the paper she has made, and to learn from her the suminagashi process.
