Hey Friends I’m headed up to River Arts, Inc this summer in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin to do a Paper Marbling Workshop. River Arts, Inc is a great space that showcases art and artist offers classes, and enriches the downtown area of Prairie du Sac. Here is a description of the class as well as a link to sign up for the workshop.
Learn to marble paper for use in book making, writing letters, table/shelf decoration, wrapping paper, scrapbooking, or anything else you’d like to do with it! This is true suminagashi paper marbling: floating ink on water and dipping paper into it. Instructor Amy Mietzel of Bare Knuckle Arts will provide various sized vats and all the inks and paper, and guide students on adding color, mixing patterns, and dipping paper. Participants in this class can expect to make 3-5 sheets of marbled paper (maybe more depending on how fast you are!), ready to take home at the end of class.
No prior experience required; aprons are available but we suggest you wear clothing you wouldn’t mind getting dirty.
