Traditional Watercoloring Marbling Workshop
Saturday Nov. 8, 2014 – 10 am – 4 pm

Traditional watercolor marbling, which dates from 15th century Persia, involves floating special paints or inks on water to which a thickening agent has been added. The colors are combed into patterns and a treated paper is applied to receive the design. Marbling is a graphic process which produces unique contact prints. Broom straw whisks and brushes are often used to apply color to a carrageenan marbling size. The combs and rakes will be used to create a classical marbled design. $12 Supply fee payable to instructor at the time of class. Cost $125   If you have any questions you can call 302-381-0322 or E-mail: 205lavinia@earthlink.net  Space is limited, so reserve now by clicking on the buy now button below or send a check to 205 Lavinia Street, Milton, DE. 19968




 

Paste Paper Design Workshop
Sunday Nov. 9, 2014 – 10 am – 4 pm
For centuries, artisans have been decorating papers by drawing designs in colored paste. The basic technique involves dampening a sheet of paper, brushing on a coat of colored paste, and drawing various implements through the paste to displace it and create patterns. Kitchen tools, calligraphy pens, carved brayers and found objects can be used to make deceptively sophisticated designs. In this photo I’m using a rubber graining comb to create a scalloped design. $12 Supply fee payable to instructor at the time of class. Supplies: Bring two 2″ wide house paint brushes. Cost $125  If you have any questions you can call 302-381-0322 or E-mail: 205lavinia@earthlink.net  Space is limited, so reserve now by clicking on the buy now button below or send a check to 205 Lavinia Street, Milton, DE. 19968

Photo Shoot & Darkroom_ The Old Fashion Way!


Shauna Thompson & Stuart Annand describe black & white photo techniques using a 4X5 inch view camera in a darkroom @ 205 Lavinia Street in Milton, DE. They were enrolled in a year long workshop which ended with an exhibit of their work in 2009. Pyrogallol was used to develop the negatives. This was one of the first developers ever used, a favorite of Edward Weston.
