The ancient process of marbling goods has been used by many cultures through time and each culture has a slightly different production process. In this class, use modern techniques to marble paper and cotton fabrics. By floating thinned paint on a gel bath and lightly agitating it with a variety of tools, unique patterns and designs, similar to smooth marble or other stone, will emerge to be transferred to paper or fabric. You will gain the skills to marble almost anything at home; for clothing, pillows, curtains, book binding, collage and more.

Develop great ways to create fresh collages by building a story and surface. Practice how to age and distress your collage.

Set your intention for the new year. Using images, pictures and affirmations, create a collage to conceptualize your goals, dreams, wishes and desires. The idea is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live or where you want to vacation, your life changes to match those images and those desires. A vision board is a powerful, visual representation of all the things that you want to do, be and have in your life. Looking daily at your board provides a reminder of and can be a source of motivation towards achieving your dreams. Focus your attention on the things that you want to attract in your life.
