Introduction to Fabric Marbling - 10.30am Workshop
Come and learn the magical art of ebru (marbling) and create your own unique fabric pieces painted on water surfaces with amazing marble patterns!
What the workshop will cover:
- Brief history of ebru art
- Review of the tools & materials used for fabric marbling
- Information about pre-treatment process of your fabric for marbling
- Information about preparing the marbling “size” (viscous solution)
- The technique and application process of the paints for creating unique designs on the size surface - Transferring marbled patterns onto fabric
- Information about the finished product process
In this two-and-a-half-hour workshop, you will learn how to create mesmerising abstract patterns on fabric. We will first start with a few examples of paper marbling to become familiar with the process and then proceed with fabric pieces. Each participant will have their own trays (30x40cm) and three pieces of small sized fabric (28x28cm).
There will also be a large size tray, which will give the opportunity to create one ~50x50cm chiffon scarf for each participant. The aim of the workshop is to give you the basic instructions of the fabric marbling process so that you acquire the necessary knowledge to practice the whole process at your discretion.
What to wear: Wear old clothes & old shoes as it can become a little messy.
Note: Marbled pieces created in our workshops may not dry on the day and you may need to collect them later.
Workshop duration: 2,5 Hours
Price Per Person: $155
