Large Format Marbling + Silk Neckerchief
Added a second class to meet demand!
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 printing their designs on 18 x 24 sheets of paper and a silk twill neckerchief.
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.
*No previous marbling experience required!
