Paper Marbling: Patterns 1

with Michelle Blodgett
Saturday, October 22; 10am–4pm CT

Patterns are an essential technique of marbling. Designed for those who have experience marbling, this in-person workshop will focus on classical patterns such as nonpareil, chevron, and their variations. Through instruction and demonstrations, learn how a single traditional marbling pattern is a starting point for multiple variations. Experiment with patterns and begin to build your own technique and palette with guidance from a seasoned practitioner. Come away with marbled paper samples, a handout, and skills needed to participate in MCBA’s Marbling Labs.

Introduction to Marbling or other equivalent marbling experience is required before registering for this workshop. This workshop is a prerequisite for Paper Marbling: Patterns 2, also known as Extreme Marbling.
