Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10, 2016
10am to 4pm
Spend a weekend learning several types of paper marbling. Make a mountain of unique paper designs for use in mixed media projects, collage, bookbinding, greeting cards, calligraphy, or printmaking. Many cultures have explored the notion of floating colors on the surface of liquids as a way to create decoration. Each style of marbling has its own design potential, color saturation, workflow, and even predictability. We’ll cover Turkish Ebru, Japanese Suminagashi, and several modern variations. Each student will have their own vat for printing. All materials are included, along with custom colors and course handouts.
Open to everyone ages 18 & up, all media and skill levels.
It’s a messy business, so please dress accordingly!
