What We’re Doing: Join us for an afternoon of exploring water marbling with textile artist Mercedez Rex. We will cover a brief history of marbling as well as classic historical patterns before diving in to experiment with basic techniques of manipulating paints on the surface of a water bath. Participants will have time to play with colors and patterns on paper before transferring their designs to two silk textiles.
About the Artist: Mercedez Rex is an artist and creativity advocate. She believes that everyone has creative potential and that cultivating creativity is a worthwhile pursuit. Her goal in teaching workshops is to encourage others to tap into their own creativity. She does this first and foremost, by offering guidance and instruction on a craft she is passionate about but more importantly, by fostering an environment that values playful experimentation and process over comparison, perfectionism, and fear of failure.
Please note: In the interest of keeping our creative community safe & well as we navigate the pandemic, we are requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test result dated within 48 hours of the workshop date for all class participants, instructors, and staff. Everyone is also to remain fully masked during workshops except when actively eating or drinking. If you have any questions about our policies, please send an email to email@example.com.
