Fabric Marbling – adult workshop
Saturday, March 30, 2019 from 10am to 4:30pm
Fuller Craft Museum, 455 Oak Street, Brockton, MA 02301
Marbling is a glorious way to spend a day. Both a delight in the making, as well as the having. You’ll be amazed at the process and your creations. We’ll focus on Turkish-style marbling. This method, “Ebru”, can produce lovely figurative designs of fish, flowers, birds. and abstract shapes or go with the traditional combed patterns. Your floating designs may be free-form, combed, or even blown. Embrace the design experiment with a wide variety of fabrics, sizes and finishes to inspire your creativity.
This workshop is structured to be an introduction for beginners or an open studio for intermediate or advanced students. With plenty of vats for printing in different sizes to fit the dimensions of the fabrics and products, you’ll be busy. Typical choices include: Fabric yardage in cotton, silk, polyester and blends, pre-sewn “blanks” in silks and cotton to include pocket squares and scarves, and ribbons in a variety of fabrics. Dress for a mess, and bring a bagged lunch.
Materials fee $40, payable in class.
