Authentic Marbling Workshop- $60 per person, materials included. Nov. 19, 11:00-2:00pm
Two hour workshop explores and produces the age-old art of making paper look like marble. The mon-type printing is a Surface Design process. Marbling is a calligraphic medium that floats color on a fluid surface. Marbling breaks the surface tension to create a spontaneous line drawing. The resulting marbled paper is a popular decorative paper used especially as endpapers in bookbinding and stationary. Participants will have an opportunity ‘to pull’ mono-type prints on paper, a limitless, simple surface design technique that fascinates the creators, as well as the viewers.
Instructor Bio—– Olive B. Durant, better known as “Lolly” is an East Tennessee Folk Artisan. She is a multi-faceted artist and teaching artist with Tennessee Art Commission. Lolly works with spontaneity to capture movement on paper and cloth. The surface design intuitively responds with the surface tension on the water, creating a unique, mono-type print when pulled from a water surface. Lolly produces paper and cloth marbled products at her home studio, “Down & Under Studios” on Signal Mountain.
