Come learn how to make hypnotic free flowing patterns on the surface of water and then transfer them to create beautifully marbled paper and fabric. We’ll start with a brief overview of different types of marbling techniques from around the world and then we’ll jump right into experimenting with making designs using various colors, tools, and approaches.
In class we’ll be focusing on the Japanese technique of Suminagashi using water and a special ink, no other crazy additives required! So it’s a wonderfully straightforward craft to continue practicing at home and it’s also one of those “no fail” type projects where even the least craftiest person can make something unique and beautiful. You’ll leave with a set of freshly marbled paper, small cotton fabric squares, a silk scarf, and a new craft addiction!
