An amazing opportunity to try traditional paper marbling and fabric marbling together.

The morning will be spent learning about the history of traditional marbling, producing Battal (big size), Tarakli (comb) patterns and designs and using freshly made inks and A3 paper and learning about repeat pattern and abstract images.

After lunch, attendees will experience fabric marbling using these newly learned techniques. A wonderful chance to understand the process of marbling from a very experienced practitioner.
