WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Marbling is an old craft known since ancient days. The oldest marbled piece was found in Pompeji.  Today,  marbling is used in various interior decorations.

How would you like to tranform a bedside table of pine into a marble table? Or to decorate the surface of a box, wood panels, a cupbord door or an ordinary dresser and make it look like marble? And when you get a hang of it, you may be inspired to marble the tiles in your bathroom!

Experience the pleasure in marbling pieces that could have never been of veined stone. A chair will be turned into a pure piece of art.

At this workshop Christian will demonstrate marbling techniques using various brushes and tools. He will show pictures of different sorts of marble. Once the prepared wooden boards are handed out, the attendants will start their own projects.

MATERIALS
Expenses for things needed amount to approximately dkk 250,-: bruches, feathers, sponge, plastic wrap, oil based paints and three prepared wooden boards
