Immerse yourself in the world of marbling in this two-day class where you will learn the nuts and bolts of the art form, dive into traditional pattern making, and have time for creative exploration.
In this class, we will walk through the steps of marbling that will take you on a journey from preparation (making the bath, mixing the paint, aluming the paper) to learning patterns and designs to discussing common problems and solutions. We will play in a variety of tank sizes and marble on a wide array of materials including paper, wood, and canvas. By the end of the class, you will have created dozens of marbled pieces that can be used for artwork, bookbinding, card making, scrap booking, framing, and more.
This class combines the Experience the Tank and Beginning Marbling classes but goes deeper into marbling by learning more advanced patterns, marbling on a wider variety of mediums, and marbling in all three tank sizes. It is designed for beginners as well as those who want to expand their marbling practice.
Spend time in the studio with lessons and learnings tailored toward your particular goals and that fit into your schedule. All classes above are available as private sessions (and make for great first dates, anniversary or birthday celebrations, mother-daughter activities, and other special events).
Already know how to marble? Great! I love to create private-lesson plans just for marblers who have a desire to work on specific techniques or patterns or who simply want to refine their skills.
