Event Overview

Marblling is a surface design method that dates back hundreds of years. The process goes by different names depending on where you are but the result is all the same- PURE MAGIC. You will learn to marble by floating pigments, combing through colors, and printing the designs on paper.  Each participant will also get the chance to print a canvas pouch or cotton bandana! 

The swirling patterns will mesmerize you and make you want to marble for hours and hours! Marbled papers can beautify a shelf or small table top, be sent as a thank you or love note, enhance a scrapbook, or be placed behind a photo or artwork as unique matting. The list goes on.

This class is meant to introduce you to the marbling process and provide you with the materials to make a couple of prints on paper and one print on fabric.  This workshops will be taking place during the Grace Logan Square Craft Market!  Your ticket to the workshop gets you entry into the market as well.

    We had such a great time at the marbling workshop! They were great at showing us different techniques and since it was a small class we got one on one instruction. We had enough time to make a lot of cards and even got to do a cute pouch at the end! We'd definitely do another workshop with Tempered!

    This class was so fun! You get to instantly see your creation come to life, and there's not really a learning curve - you just get started marbling and you get interesting results right away. Definitely something to try!
