Seaweed Marbling
Marbling takes its name from the way designs on marbled fabric can resemble the veins and ripples in marble stone. A seaweed extract called carrageenan is used to create a thick syrupy water that the paint is floated on. Thus, the name, “seaweed marbling.”

In this workshop, students use various objects such as forks, chopsticks, toothpicks or corn holders to create their own design in the floating paint, then make their print by placing fabric on the paint-covered surface of the water. We will print on both fabric and paper.

Tie Dye Night

I will provide the dye and equipment; you bring items you want to transform: cotton t-shirts, scarves, tote bags, pillow cases... any natural fabric. We’ll spend the evening folding, twisting, tying and dyeing to create colorful accents for your apparel or home.

Who: Older children with an adult, teens and adults are welcome

When: Thursday, May 2 @ 6:30 - 8:30 pm
