Paper Marbling
CLASS DATE: Sunday, April 21, 12-2pm
LOCATION: Oil and Cotton Studio
INSTRUCTOR: Shannon Driscoll

This one-day workshop is an eye opening introduction to the craft of of embellishing surfaces with colorful marbling. We will begin with a brief lecture on preparation and process. This includes sourcing and selecting materials, pretreating surfaces with a mordant, and a demonstration on mixing a Carrageenan marbling gel/size bath. Colors will be floated and manipulated on an aqueous surface and transferred to a paper surface, creating a unique pattern reminiscent of the natural look of marble, stones and liquid smoke. Class will focus on experimentation.

We are excited to share this ancient technique used to embellish paper with swirls of color with you!

Students will learn:
- chemistry and how to coat papers and surface with an alum mordant
- how to make a Carrageenan size
- how mix and test a variety of paints with gall
- to make a splatter brush and other marbling tools from household items
- how to manipulate the floating paints to create magical patterns of color

Leave class with at least 12 sheets of marbled paper.
