Instructor: Jen Omaitz
Saturday, July 23rd 10–4pm
Learn the magical art of marbling on fabric with this one day intensive workshop. We will explore pattern, color and design through marbling. Marbling consist of suspending inks on thickened water (carrageenan). The inks are then manipulated through a series of swirls, rakes and other techniques to transform them into a given design. Each student will have the opportunity to experiment on paper and silk and will finish the workshop with a silk marbled scarf.
