Tuesday, June 21  |  2-5pm  |  $100 tuition + $35 materials

A hands-on workshop using traditional and experimental techniques from Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

High Flow: Paper Marbling is a hands-on workshop that explores the colorful practice of paper marbling, using experimental and traditional techniques. Participants will discover the joy of creating beautifully marbled patterns through a series of simple lessons and demonstrations. We will begin with an introduction to methods found throughout parts of Asia, using sumi-ink on cotton rag and hand-made papers. In addition, we will learn marbling methods inspired by European and Middle Eastern traditions, using modern acrylic inks on a carrageenan (seaweed extract) size. Most importantly, we are encouraged to let the flow of the process lead to new discovery! All participants will leave with their own marbled creations and a takeaway instructional guide for future paper marbling projects.
