Learn the technique of marbling to decorate textile surfaces with swirling patterns, reminiscent of that found in natural marble stone. Create completely unique prints, and let the organic process guide your artistic decision-making. This workshop will provide you with all you need to create your own marbled tea towel set and silk scarf. A great opportunity for those who would like opportunities to extend the techniques they have learned in Leslie Perrino's silk scarf painting workshops. Feel free to bring along some high quality paper (such as watercolor paper) for additional marbling experiments.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. We have aprons, but please wear clothes suitable for artmaking.
