Marbled Silk Scarves with Nan Hadley

Sunday, November 8
1–2:30 or 2:30–4 p.m.
$15 for members, $17 non-members

Nan Hadley, fiber artist and art educator, will lead a class on marbling techniques for silk,  making an eight-inch by four-foot silk scarf with a multi-color marble pattern. You’ll learn the process of marbling, creating a design through a variety of colored pigments suspended on a surface of carrageenan moss.  Once the color is dripped on the surface, you’ll “rake” and “comb” the drops to form a fluid pattern.  This pattern is then transferred directly onto paper or fabric. Once the dye is set and rinsed it is permanent and ready to wear. You’ll also get the chance to practice on paper note cards, making unique stationary to take home.

While you’re here, you’ll get the first look at our holiday exhibition, Gifts of the Craftsmen, featuring beautiful jewelry, functional pottery, wooden serving bowls and utensils, knit scarves and hats, leather accessories, handmade ornaments and greeting cards.

Pre-registration is required: Call 614-486-4402 to register.
