Fabric Marbling

with Sabine Spare

Saturday October 1
2:00 - 5:00 pm

Tuition: $103 + HST + $25.00 Materials Fee (collected in class)
Maximum 6 participants

Fabric marbling is an ancient pattern-making technique in which pigments are dropped on a thickened liquid surface and a print is made from the resulting design. In this workshop, students will learn the fundamentals and both traditional and experimental techniques for marbling on fabric, including how to set up a marbling bath, prepare fabrics, the best inks to use, and different approaches to patterning. The workshop will include a small self-directed project, and students will leave the workshop with cotton samples, a marbled silk scarf, and the confidence to explore the technique further.
