Full details

How it works

We create a floating piece of art on the surface of the water and capture the swirling, ever-morphing moments as prints on coasters. Participants gain a new understanding of fluid dynamics as we incorporate natural forces, such as breath and vibration, into our art to create visual harmony. At the end of the experience, guests walk away with a greater sense of natural artistic abilities, a renewed sense of wonder and creativity, and a Sumi kit for de-stressing that will last for years!
