Paper Marbling Workshop Experiment & Play Day
Ages 16+, no experience necessary
Max students: 6 Min students: 3
Saturday, June 19, 10am-2pm
$100 - all materials included
Preregistration is Required
This workshop requires the instructor to prepare the marbling bath and the papers for each participant before the day of the class – preregistration is required.
What’s the Process
During the lockdown, Pat took an online course called “Clouds on Water” from Master Marbler Barb Skoog. This adventure was funded by an Arizona Commission on the Arts “Artist Opportunity Grant”.
This workshop will present the basics of a centuries-old, water-based technique of paper decoration called “Ebru Marbling”.
The process uses a thickened bath made with carrageenan (seaweed). Blank paper is pre-treated with alum, a mordant that causes the paint to stick to the paper. Water-soluble paints are floated on the bath and designs are made in the paint with a variety of tools. The paper is placed onto the surface of the bath, which transfers the design from the bath surface to the paper, then the paper is hung to dry.
Tools and Materials
There is a lot involved in marbling. All materials and tools will be available. Participants will be provided prepared papers to marble and will leave with a nice supply of decorated papers.
ArtHub is the central meeting point for artists in Kingman, Arizona. We are dedicated to offering quality art instruction, events, and experiences to enrich the lives and skills of our artists and our community.
