Fabric & Paper Marbling


$ 95  

 

Ever wonder how to get those beautiful, complex marbled patterns on fabric and/or paper? I'll show you how to create some simple yet stunning patterns on paper and fabric that you can use in your sewing and mixed media projects! We'll apply marbled designs to fabric as well as to paper and a paper mache box using traditional and non-traditional techniques! These will be great pieces to quilt with as well as create collages, mini books, etc. The main focus will be creating as many marbled surfaces as possible but we'll also explore how to use these pieces in mini sewing projects (bags, journals, etc) using the collage kits.

Materials fee $20 paid directly to instructor at beginning of class includes:
Collage paper pack full of unique assortment of handmade, scrapbook, recycled, vintage papers, marbled paper and marbled fabric scraps, and a paper mache box.
Use of shared materials: Paper/Fabric marbling kits which include marbling ink, alum, carageenan, synthetic gall, droppers, combs

Supplies You Need to Bring to Class in addition to materials provided by instructor:
None! All are included!

Optional items: Heat gun would be great to help speed up drying time on paper prints. Fabric scraps or extra paper scraps you'd like to experiment on. Make as many pieces as possible for use in later projects!
