Mother's Day Sips and Suminagashi Scarves @ Shofuso Japanese House and Garden | Philadelphia | Pennsylvania | United States

Bring your mom or the favorite woman in your life to Shofuso for a one of a kind after-hours experience! Sip mimosas on our veranda while taking in the beautiful views, take a private tour of the house, and create a beautiful suminagashi silk scarf to commemorate the experience.

Suminagashi or floating ink is a marbling technique that dates back to the 12th century in Japan. Pigment is added to a vat of water and manipulated to make beautiful organic designs and patterns. Each scarf created will be a one of a kind work of art.
