Location: Gina Lillycrop Designs Studio, Airlies farm, Wigtown. DG8 9BD
Time: 10 am – 12 noon
This is a special Mother’s Day workshop for the Mother figure in your life. Instead of the usual chocolates and flowers, come and spend some quality time together, and give her a gift she will treasure forever.
You will both learn the basic art of marbling and leave with a beautiful hand marbled scarf each.
This class is perfect for everyone. No experience of anything remotely arty is required for this workshop. And not just for girls! Men you can bring your mothers along too and have some fun!
It is a contradiction of emotions. The excitement of what you can do with these colours while they’re floating on water and transferring them to fabric, and the calm realisation of knowing you can’t possibly make a mistake.
I will teach you some of the basic marbling techniques, before setting you free to experiment with patterns, colours and resist techniques. Your experiments are done on A6 cards before creating your scarf or lampshade fabric. which should give you 10 hand marbled gift cards (with envelopes) to take home.
All materials and refreshments will be provided.
(Don’t forget you can still spoil them with the chocolates and flowers afterwards)
