Fabric Marbling Workshop

Join us for a marvellous marbling workshop where you will paint on water and transform it into stunning fabric designs. You will learn the secrets of ebru, the ancient art of marbling, and create your own one-of-a-kind fabric pieces with beautiful marble patterns.

What the workshop will cover;

 

  • Brief history of ebru art

  • Review of the tools & materials used for fabric marbling

  • Information about pre-treatment process of your fabric for marbling

  • Information about preparing the marbling “size” (viscous solution)

  • The technique and application process of the paints for creating unique designs on the size surface

  • Transferring marbled patterns onto fabric

  • Information about the finished product process

In this two and a half hour workshop, you will learn how to create mesmerising abstract patterns on fabric. We will first start with a few examples of paper marbling to become familiar with the process and then proceed with fabric pieces. Each participant will have their own trays (30x40cm) and 3 pieces of small sized fabric (28x28cm)

 

There will also be a large size tray which will give the opportunity to create one 50x50cm chiffon scarf for each participant.

 

The aim of the workshop is to give you the basic instructions of fabric marbling process so that you acquire necessary knowledge to practice the whole process at your discretion.

 

What to wear?

Wear old clothes & old shoes as it can become a little messy 😊

 

Note: Marbled fabric pieces probably won't dry on the same day so you may need to collect them at a later date or they can be posted to you.
