Instructor: Natalie Stopka Dates: July 7, 12 This TAC at Home workshop introduces participants to colorful and expressive fabric marbling. In our first remote session we'll learn the fundamentals, including how to select fabrics and prepare acrylic paints to create permanent prints. After getting familiar with traditional patterns, students can develop their own palette and style to create a suite of patterns over 2-4 hours of independent work during the week. Our second session will focus on sharing our experiments, intermediate techniques, and Q+A. Students must source their own supplies from the list below. MATERIALS + EQUIPMENT Wear clothing and shoes that you do not care about staining. All marbling tools must be craft-dedicated. Participating students will be responsible for having these tools available to them: Pre-washed cotton, linen and/or silk, about 2 yards 50g aluminum sulfate 1/4C carrageenan Kodak Photo-flo or synthetic gall Golden Fluid acrylic paints Gloves Marbling tray about 12x18" and 1-3" deep (roasting pan, plastic storage box, photo developing tray) Paper cups, small jars, or an old ice cube tray for palette Eye droppers Drop cloth Two 2-5 gallon buckets Whisk Measuring spoons Drying line or rack Iron and ironing board Scissors Newspaper or newsprint -- Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime!
