Let marbling work its irresistable magic on you. Come ready to be hypnotized by the graceful movement of colorful paints flowing across the surface of the water-based liquid. Watch in amazement as the beautiful organic shapes are permanently transferred to silk and cotton. Also, students will receive a guide to color mixing and information on setting up an inexpensive and efficient workspace. Students will go home with a beautiful selection of facbrics to be used in fabric collage, quilting or Nuno felting and a silk charmeuse scarf.
