Water Marbling Workshop: Silk Scarf and Paper
[ADDITIONAL OFFERING!] Friday, May 12, 2023 from 12:30pm-3:30pm Cost: $78 
Description: Water Marbling is a centuries-old art form where paint is floated on water & special tools are used to create designs and patterns. The image is then captured by placing paper or fabric (or other porous materials) on top of the water where it is immediately transferred and permanently affixed. This is an introduction to this mystical art form where you will learn basic water marbling techniques.
You will use simple tools such as rakes, sticks, combs, and splatter brushes to create unique, one-of-a-kind designs.
We will start the workshop by learning how the paints float and how the colors respond to each other. Next, we learn basic designs like freestyle, stone, peacock, and feather which we print to paper. Lastly, you will then apply these techniques to design a 14"x72" silk scarf. There are no special skills required, only the willingness to experiment and have fun!
