—- This is for participants who want to take both the Intro to Marbling & Advanced Marbling workshops in the same weekend —-
Into to Marbling and Ebru: Marbling is the art of floating and designing watercolors on a base fluid then permanently transferring the design to paper. It was developed by the Persians in the 15th C. The participants will be instructed in preparing the paper to accept the paint; mixing the colors for marbling; creating the base fluid; floating the colors on the base, then designing them; and transferring the design to paper. This class will teach both the introduction to marbling and Turkish Marbling, or Ebru, the Art of Cloud Painting. The students will take home their finished papers. Marbling students who take the bookbinding course may use their papers for book covers.
Paste Paper: Paste Papers are decorative papers that adorned books and other objects. They were easier to make than Marbled Papers, and less expensive, but just as exotic looking. Moravian women in Germany and Pennsylvania mastered the craft.
Marbling and Paste Paper students who take the bookbinding courses may use their papers for book covers.
