Mary Sundstrom: Hands-on Turkish Marbling

Mary Sundstrom demonstrates the basics of marbling while
avid guild members watch.
Mary Sundstrom presented her creative approach to marbling on Wed., Oct. 2, at the Holland Area Arts Council where she works as Program Director.  She loves learning and watching students of all ages develop new ways of creating.

So, after demonstrating the basics of marbling, she watched and helped all of us create a myriad of colorful and wild marbled fabric.

Evidently, it was the Chinese and Japanese that developed the technique but it was the Turks that came up with the carageenan (made from seaweed) to float the fabric or paper on the surface.
