Location: Canton, MA
Limited to 5 students
Tuition: $105 includes all materials, technique handouts, and dinner
An evening 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 a little liquid dynamics and surface tension.
Structured to be an introduction for beginners and open studio for intermediate or advanced students. Learn an exciting, engaging new art. 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, kraft & ivory cardstock greeting cards/envelopes, and unbuffered bond paper. You’ll leave with a stack of papers and strategies for your doing it at home.
The evening will begin with a fresh, vegetarian dinner with homemade soup, salad and sandwiches.
As we get acquainted and enjoy our meal, the basic concepts and techniques will be discussed. Then, it’s right into marbling. Your lovely creations will get a chance to dry while we finish up with some fresh brewed coffee and home-baked goodies at 9:45pm.
Open to everyone ages 18 & up, all media and skill levels.
It’s a messy business, so please dress accordingly!
