Intermediate Marbling Techniques: Gel-git, Comb + Stippling

October 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$65 – $75

Hands-on classes in the Book Arts studio!

In this class, we will learn how to mix gall, rake, comb and work with Gel-git, or coming and going, a foundational technique for building more advanced marbling techniques such as Peacock, French Curl and Bouquet, in addition to working with basic combing and drawing and stippling, both techniques required to achieve more advanced Italian and Turkish patterns. Students will work towards completing a successful Spotted Zebra print, a semi-traditional pattern making use of Gel-git, deliberate color choices and spreaded stippling, and will leave understanding more about the intricacies of more complex comb and rake techniques. This will be covered in a later class.

Things to note:
• This workshop is geared towards intermediate learners, and we strongly suggest students take the Ebru Marbling Beginner class we offer first, or have pre-requisite marbling experience. This class delves into more complicated marbling techniques than the basic Ebru Paper Marbling workshop. If you have any questions, please contact us!
• All necessary tools to participate are provided.

Any questions about the class please email [email protected]
