Fabric Marbling


  • Minnesota Center for Book Arts 1011 S Washington Avenue Minneapolis, MN 55415 USA (map)

Experience the magic of marbling! In this weekend-long fabric marbling workshop, learn to make the four basic patterns (stones, moire/waved, git-gel, and nonpareil) and a few advanced patterns. Class discussions include the science of marbling, critiques, and troubleshooting. Participants will take their marbled fabrics home ready to use for bookbinding and other arts. Please bring one yard of PFD cotton fabric, 1/2 yard of silk or another natural fabric, and one pair of canvas tennis shoes. Instructions for fabric preparation to be completed before class will be sent in advance.
