Class Description

In this workshop, I will teach you the techniques of marbling silk. We will discuss preparation of carageenan size, paints and the basic tools. We will each have an individual work station, consisting of a smaller tank, brushes, paints, etc. We can experiment with the techniques that I demonstrate. As we gain confidence and skill, and relax into the process, we can then move up to the large scarf tank, 18”x80”, and begin to marble scarves. I will have scarves available to purchase at cost.

About the Instructor

I am a perennial maker, largely self taught. I have always loved both learning and sharing through teaching. For several years, my work has centered on Ebru marbling, a Turkish surface design technique. I marble wearable silks and papers that I use primarily in the construction of my hand-bound journals. I look forward to sharing techniques of Ebru marbling with you in this workshop.
