CLOSED Paper Marbling Workshop with Sophie Loubere


Paper Marbling Crash Course

June 1-2, 2019

Saturday & Sunday, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Dive deep into the ancient art of painting on water and pull your own one of a kind, mesmerizing prints. This three day workshop gives historical context and hands on, step-by-step instructions so that by the end of the course, students will know how to make their own marbled paper in both the accessible Japanese tradition well as the more involved and visually familiar Turkish tradition.

The first day, students learn the art of suminagashi, the Japanese traditional technique of floating ink on water. After learning this new skill and pulling as many prints as they like, students learn how to prepare materials for Turkish marbling, a technique we see in books and stationary shops everywhere today. The second day, students learn to marble using paint and thickened water on paper they have prepared with mordent the day before. They learn a variety of raking techniques, and build up their pulling skills, until they are able to pull several large sheets of paper in their chosen pattern.

The instructor brings all materials necessary to the class. Please be advised that marbling is a messy sport, and dress appropriately. 

A $22.00 materials fee is due to instructor at start of class.
