Textiles

Visiting Artist in Textiles

Visiting artist, Kayla Mattes, taught a hand marbling workshop in textiles today. Marbling is the process of floating fabric paints on the surface of a thick carrageen solution (seaweed), somewhat like oil on water. The floating paints are swirled into patterns. Then you capture your design by laying a treated piece of fabric down on top of the paint to transfer the swirls to the fabric.
