Paper Marbling Basics
Taught by Kelly Laughlin
Kelly Laughlin is a multidisciplinary artist and educator who focuses on the playful, meditative acts of making. She believes every person is capable of living a creative life. Kelly is the founder of Odette Press, a paper marbling and bookbinding studio focused on specialty papers, books, and stationery, created with the intention to support self discovery and healing through the act of writing.
Learn the creative and meditative process of water-based marbling, characterized by delicate tendrils of colorful inks and swirling patterns, pigment sit on top of the water's surface and is moved by breath, brush, or tool. Paper is then set on the surface of the water, capturing the floating lines and shapes.
In this class, we'll explore a variety of techniques for creating your own marbled designs and how to continue exploring this process at home. You'll walk away with your own collection of unique marbled paper designs for use in your own creative endeavors.
All materials are provided (we'll use an easy-to-use marbling kit and various papers).
