The marbling experience is both meditative and creative for all skill levels and artistic interests. Be prepared for a fun, messy, fast-paced art day that is “engineered for success”. All participants will have their own marbling vat, custom color choices, and plenty of paper types. We’ll explore the historical techniques and contemporary trends in this unique form of aqueous surface decoration.
Instructor: Cristina Hajosy
Cristina Hajosy is a mixed media artist, art educator and designer based in Greater Boston. She is the owner of Hajosy Arts (hajosyarts.com), an art studio of photography, printmaking, book arts, and historical decorative arts, especially paper marbling and paste paper. She is the co-founder and president of New England Book Artists (newenglandbookartists.org). Her work strives to foster understanding and personal growth through book arts education and the creation of beautifully challenging and personally satisfying art. Her passion for marbling began with paper, specifically to be used in the context of bookbinding. It swiftly moved to fabrics, textiles, wood and found objects. She finds marbled patterns can be conceptualized into mixed media contexts in unique ways. Often feminist, body-related, and occasionally narrative, her marbled artworks take this traditional craft into a contemporary, often turbulent place.
