Tuition:  $125  includes all materials, technique handouts and lunch



A day experimenting with paper marbling.  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.

This technique combines artistic sensibilities with mediative, creative thought… and even a little liquid dynamics and surface tension…oh no! That’s physics!

Spend the morning learning the process or jump right in, if you’re familiar with the materials.  This workshop is structured to be an introduction for beginners or an open studio for intermediate or advanced students. Fostering an open, relaxed environment where all levels of artists can learn and share ideas, producing beautiful papers, and expanding your art practice; that’s what it’s all about.

Each participant will have their own vat for printing.  Custom acrylic color and paper choices available.  Canson Ingres, Texoprint paper, Masa paper, Mi-Tientes pastel paper, sheet music, maps, paper lanterns and cardstock greeting cards.  You’ll leave with a stack of papers and strategies for marbling on your own.

The morning will begin with fresh brewed coffee and home-baked goodies at 9:45am, and we’ll break for a fresh, vegetarian lunch with homemade soup, salad and sandwiches.
