Western Paper Marbling
In this introductory workshop, students will gain a basic understanding of the history, techniques, tools, and styles of European paper marbling. Students will experiment with free-form swirled patterns, and learn to create intricate classical patterns using combs and rakes to manipulate the pigments in a carrageenan bath. The patterns will then be transferred to paper, creating one-of-a-kind decorative sheets. Students will have plenty of time for experimentation, and they’ll leave with a collection of their own marbled papers, which can be using for bookbinding projects or displayed as works of art. All materials provided.
