Intro to Marbling
Summer session in the Land of Enchantment!
Join us for an afternoon of exploring water marbling- an ancient mono-printing process with textile artist Mercedez Rex. She will cover a brief history of marbling and demonstrate basic techniques of manipulating pigments on the surface of a water bath. Each participant will have their own marbling vat and time to practice learned techniques and color combinations before transferring their designs to both paper and silk textiles. Students will leave with prints on paper and silk.
Mercedez Rex is an artist and creativity advocate. She believes that everyone is creative and that cultivating creativity is a worthwhile pursuit that leads to emotional resilience and a deeper sense of purpose. Her goal in teaching workshops is to encourage others to tap into their own creativity. She does this first and foremost, by offering guidance and instruction on a craft she is passionate about but more importantly by fostering an environment that values playful experimentation and process over comparison, perfectionism, and fear of failure.
