Traditional Ebru Marbling on Paper

October 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Art & History Museums – Maitland

Sunday, October 16 | 10am-4pm

Instructor: Peggy Wertheim
Location: The Cottage at Lake Lily
Cost: $145 + $35 materials fee

Unlike many art forms which take years to master, marbling will inspire you with instant gratification and successes! Peggy teaches the traditional ebru marbling techniques using carrageenen (powdered seaweed) mixed into water to create “the size.” Then acrylic paints are placed onto the size to create mesmerizing patterns and designs such as: Feather, Bird Wing, Chevron, Peacock, Stone Marble etc. You will create 10-15 marbled papers which can be incorporated into greeting cards, scrapbooking, collages, framed art, journal covers and so much more. We will also experiment at the end of day with pieces of cotton & silk! The last 30 minutes of the workshop will be finishing up our projects and cleaning up. Reference books & handout packet provided.

Workshop is for adults 18 and over. Registration is $145. Please note that a materials fee of $35 (in cash) is due to the instructor at the start of the workshop.
