I will demonstrate the 17th Century of floating paint on a thick gel surface. I will show how the paint is manipulated with combs and rakes rather than a paint brush. We practice on paper a bunch to find that perfect combination of colors, the order the paint is dropped, and the pattern or design you desire for either your 100% silk scarf or cotton fabric. I have over 30 years of teaching marbling to all ages, from 5 year olds to 70 year olds. I will provide background on marbling + historical reference to the origin of the media. Each workshop participant will leave with a completed wearable work of art, a marbled silk scarf or a square fabric which can be stretched on wood framing! Wow, you will amaze yourself!! I'd love to meet you while creating a memorable art experience of your visit to Asheville. Reach out to me at www.majik-studios.com and see what is happening when you are vacationing here.
Currently, I instruct students at the prestigious John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC in different workshops from papermaking to marbling. I have over 30 years of experience in marbling for my own products, in public settings like schools, hotels, and many on site venues. I have been in the education field since 1978 when I began teaching public school elementary art. I ran an art center for a brief time on Hilton Head Island, SC before relocating with my family to Asheville, NC. I taught elementary art at Brevard Elementary School in Brevard, NC for 17 years until I retired in 2016 to teach adults my love of marbling and papermaking. I look forward to enhancing your trip to Asheville in a creative way.

My studio is located at 207 Coxe Avenue, inside the Refinery Creator Space. The outside of the building has a blue mural with birds painted to attract attention to our building. Come into our well lit Studio 13, halfway down the hall on the right. The studio is well equipped with tables, chairs, easels and a small gallery representing our artists. You will leave mentally clear and calm because the act of creating art relieves stress.
