About this Workshop:

This workshop will introduce you to the basics of traditional paper marbling, including both combed and stone patterns. The history of marbling will be discussed, along with how to make tools and the materials needed for marbling on your own.  In addition to marbling sheets of paper, you will have the opportunity to experiment with marbling on other surfaces, such as wood, leather, and fabric.

Level: Beginner

Registration extended through February 19, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class.
