LSSU art instructor Heidi Finley will present a hands-on marbling workshop today that will introduce you to the craft and allow you to make some original valentine cards (or whatever else you'd like). The workshop is $90. Come learn the historical craft of marbling on paper. You'll drop paint onto the surface of water and use special tools to arrange the color into complex-looking intricate patterns, then lower a sheet of paper from above and make a one-of-a-kind original print. Finley says the process is fascinating and beautiful, even in the hands of beginners. With all manner of red paint on-hand, you'll make marbled papers for original valentine cards. Or, you can skip the hearts altogether and use your own choice of colors to make whatever you'd like. Finley will provide plenty of ideas and up-close demonstrations for inspiration. All skill levels are welcome, and no art experience is necessary. Beginners can count on plenty of friendly instruction, and everyone works at his/her own marbling tank. Each participant will make 6-8 marbled papers and a silk item. Must sign-up in advance! http://www.lssu.edu/edventures To see beautiful marbled papers and other products, please visit www.marbledgoods.etsy.com
