INTRODUCTION TO TEXTILE MARBLING

  • Nevada Museum of Art 160 West Liberty Street Reno, NV, 89501 United States

This extension of our popular Introduction to Paper Marbling workshop will help students take their marbling skills to the next level as they learn to marble on fabric that can be used for covering books and boxes.

Students will begin the day by working on marbling skills with the introduction of marbling on fabric. With the instructor's guidance, they will work on new patterns with an eye for nuance. The main focus will be on marbling fabric to create book cloth, and techniques for other textile uses will also be discussed. At the end of the day, the instructor will demonstrate how to prepare pieces of marbled cloth for use in bookbinding. Students will leave with their own stack of 15 marbled fabric pieces.

This workshop is open to beginners and will build on the skills learned in Introduction to Paper Marbling for returning students. All materials provided with registration.
