After-School Marbling a Silk Scarf for Kids
FA8402 Nov 16, 2018 (4-6pm) Friday (LTB Studio)
In this single afternoon class, students will learn a little about the history of marbling, see a brief demonstration by the instructor and then begin creating their own marbled scarf. They'll learn how to apply paint to the surface of the water and try the various tools that can be used to make the intricate patterns associated with this ancient technique. Each student will then make their own scarf and get instructions on washing and ironing after completion. If time permits, there may be an opportunity for students to make an additional scarf, with the cost to be paid directly to the instructor. Ages 8 to 14 years, a materials fee of $25.00 will be added to the tuition.
