Participants will explore patterns and designs by marbling on a variety of paper. We will also explore color combinations and marbling techniques through traditional (Ebru) and non-traditional approaches. Marbling consists of suspending inks on thickened water (carrageenan) bed. These inks are raked through swirls, zig-zags, and other gestures to transform a given design. Students can expect to make at least 12 sheets of marbled paper.

Student Supply List: 

- Any special paper (pre-alumed)

- Apron 

- Gloves (if preferred),
