In case anyone is up for two fun days of marbling . . .
Marbling: Ancient Art, Modern Art Form
June 13 & 14 | 9 - 4
Learn to create the amazing intricacies of the ancient art of marbling, and then use those techniques to experiment with a range of materials, colors, and papers to create your own unique designs. During this two day comprehensive workshop you will learn how to prepare paper for marbling; using acrylic paints, alum, carrageenan and gall you will learn classic designs such as The Peacock, Stone Marbling, and The Spanish Wave, among others. A supply list will be sent prior to class. At the end of two days you will have over 25 papers suitable for book arts, collage, or other related work.
