Ebru Paper Marbling with Studio 'N The Round
Saturday, March 24th, 2-5 pm

Sign up to learn the 15th Century Turkish decorative technique called Ebru or “Cloud Paper." 
We'll float pigments atop liquid seaweed, use combs, rakes, and other tools to manipulate the pattern in our vats, and capture our designs on various papers. 

Students will take home marbled papers and be introduced to the history, 
recipes, and best practices of Ebru.


Soap Making Workshop with Mara Estes & Tara Quackenbush
Saturday, April 7th, 1-2:30 pm

Come discover how to make your own cold-process herbal soaps, and learn more about
the properties of carrier oils, essential oils, and herbs. Tara & Mara will lead us through the steps one by one, so we can safely and easily make soap at home. 

Materials lists, recipes, and resources will be provided, along with three bars of freshly-made soap, and instructions for how to cure them.
