DIY Marbled Gift Wrap

Sunday, December 5, 2021, 4:00:00 PM UTC

Hotel Magdalena 1101 Music Lane Austin, TX 78704

The second workshop in a HandMade Holiday series hosted by Hotel Magdalena.

Join us for an afternoon of exploring water marbling with textile artist Mercedez Rex. We will cover a brief history of marbling as well as classic historical patterns before diving in to experiment with basic techniques of manipulating paints on the surface of a water bath. Each participant will have their OWN large marbling tray and time to practice learned techniques and color combinations before transferring their designs to 18 x 24 sheets of paper.

These papers are fantastic as gift wrap, bookbinding/ book arts, collage and many other craft applications- Students will work at their own pace and leave with between 5-10 sheets of hand marbled paper depending on speed and detail of design.

Covid Safety: This workshop will be held in a well ventilated space indoors. Workstations will be socially distant and masks are required at all times on the hotel property.
