Textile Marbling (Feb 8) with Megan Mesloh
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Megan Mesloh
Swirling patterns, organic shapes and natural formations: marbling offers a playful, no-pressure approach to textile surface design. Before the studio becomes a swirling kaleidoscope of colors and patterns, students will be introduced to how to prepare fabric, mix a vat of methocel-based marbling gel, and share material tips along the way. Students will test colors and patterns on a small scale with fabric swatches before moving forward with a large-scale finished piece. Composition, balance, color, and shape will all be points of experimentation in the marbling process.
No previous experience necessary. Open to students 16 & up.
