THE ART OF MARBLING: FABRIC
Treasured in many cultures for its beauty and elaborate pattern designs at one time marbled paper was reserved solely for religious writings. In some cultures, the destruction or unauthorized disposal of marbled paper was forbidden.
Over the course of the Middle Ages, Turkish masters of ebru, as the technique is known there, took marbling to a new level and the art spread across the world.
Today, marbling is used to create fabric designs, fine papers and artwork.
You’re invited to join me in studio for a late evening of cocktails, nibbles, water and paint as we explore art and color through the beautiful centuries-old process of marbling on fabric.
During the workshop you’ll learn the fundamentals of marbling, bath mixing and fabric prepping. You’ll have plenty of time to play with colors and patterns making small samples before transferring your new skills onto your final piece.
No art-making experience required. Space is limited.
Sign up early. Participants are required to bring their favorite white or lightly-colored silk nighttime item, for example a slip, pair of shorts, piece of lingerie or bra/pantie set. No dark items.
