Turkish Marbling Workshop
Instructor Christine DiMarco
Turkish Marbling is an Eastern art dating from around 1200CE. Learn this ancient art process as we drop stone ground watercolors onto a size of water mixed with seaweed extract. Designs may be imposed upon these colors and the images will be lifted from the tray with papers coated with a mordant that permanently fixes the images to the papers. These beautiful images may be used as art in themselves, calligraphy, bookbinding, cards and more. Come play and explore this elemental art!
Materials fees are $7 to the instructor.

Instructor Julietta Appleton
Log cabin quilts are one of the most popular traditional quilt patterns. Learn to make a log cabin quilt top the easy way, using strip piecing. Taught by quilter and artist Julietta Appleton, you’ll learn to: Cut fabric using a rotary cutter, chain piece fabric, make neat seams, and create a masterpiece you’ll always treasure.
The log cabin pattern usually has a red center block, plus three gradated light fabrics on one side of the block and three gradated dark fabrics on the other side. But you can use any colors or fabrics you love (batiks look GREAT), making sure you use contrasting fabrics for each side and a vivid center block.
