Thank you for your interest in Open Studio! Available to my current and former marbling students, I offer open studio time as a way of giving those who don’t have studio space the chance to continue to experience and explore the joys of marbling beyond the classroom ~ and at an affordable price.
Open Studio (5 hours)
Date: Saturday, April 13
Time: 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Cost: $65 for large tank (20x25), $40 for medium tank (11x14)
Must register by April 10.
The cost includes bath (one time tank fill), up to 10 paints, alum, distilled water, dispersant and retarder, use of tank and tools, and use of studio space. You bring your own paper (or other materials to marble upon…or purchase from me) and extra paint (if necessary). If you need a refill of bath, there will be an additional charge.
Very important…please read the overview and list of requirements below before signing up.
Open Studio is available ONLY to former or current students of mine who have taken an in-person class with me or participated in my online course. NO EXCEPTIONS.
No pets, children, or guests allowed. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Choose what tank size you want to marble in (11×14 or 20×25). This will be your personal, dedicated tank the whole time. When you arrive, your marbling station will be set up (bath and alum is already made for you!) and ready for you to use immediately. You just need to mix your paints and alum papers (if you haven’t done so already) and you’re off and marbling!
One person per tank. If there are two of you, you will need two tanks. This is to manage the number of people in the studio at one time and make it the best possible environment for all participating.
There is no formal instruction during Open Studio. In fact, I’m not always in the studio the whole time. If you need basic assistance or troubleshooting, I am there to help, but please do not ask me how to do a pattern or explain a technique. This is your time for learning and experimenting.
The studio is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You may come for all or part of it, as you please. The cost is set and is not prorated if you are not there for the full four hours.
At the end of your session, you will be asked to do some basic clean up of your tools and marbling station, as directed by me. Please allow 15-20 minutes for this.
To express interest in reserving your spot, please fill out the form below. If you want to reserve a spot for more than one person, please sign them up separately.
Spots are reserved on a first come, first served basis. Submitting this form does not guarantee a spot in the class. I will follow up with you via email within 24 hours to let you know if you are in or if the class is already full.
Hope to see you marbling soon!
