On September 17, we had an opportunity to host a suminagashi workshop with artist/instructor Dominique Prevost. Dominique was born in Québec City and now resides in Oakville, Ontario, a renowned suminagashi artist and dedicated washi user.

Here are some reviews from the workshop:
"Pure happiness — in the flow — concentration level I haven't experienced in years."
"We had lots of time to explore the art. It was nice to try out the different papers. Extremely satisfied."
