Class Description Water Marbling

Water marbling is an ancient technique of lightly applying pigments onto the surface of thickened water in order to create beautiful, swirling designs that may be transferred onto a range of different surfaces such as wood, leather, fabric, and more! In this class, you’ll learn about the origins of marbling art and how it was applied in different cultures. We’ll show you how to prepare a marbling bath and use different DIY tools and marbling colors to create mesmerizing, psychedelic color patterns. Once you’re happy with your kaleidoscope-like design, you’ll learn how to properly dip leather, wood, and fabric into the bath in order to perfectly transfer your trippy patterns onto each object! This class is perfect for anyone who sometimes feels intimidated by arts and crafts, because the process requires no previous art experience and it is relatively easy to create impressive, unique, and beautiful designs! Each student will leave with four (4) marbled leather OR wood coasters, one (1) marbled silk pocket square, as well as the know-how to repeat this mesmerizing art practice at home!
