BAYarts offers marbleizing paper workshop

The art of marbleizing designs will be taught in Nov. 8 workshop at BAYarts.

Do you love the look of richly marbleized designs? This November, channel your inclination for an artistic outlet in a workshop taught by Peggy Wertheim on Saturday, Nov. 8, 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m., at BAYarts.

The art of marbleizing designs on paper and silk is a process that is simple and gratifying for artists of any level. Students will explore how paper and silk can be marbleized using traditional water baths, acrylic paints and powdered seaweed. They will be learning patterns such as Feather, Bird Wing and Chevron. Between 12-15 marbled paper silks will be created by all, which can then be utilized in holiday cards, scrapbooks, journals and any of your other ongoing, and future, projects.

Ms. Wertheim brings an interest in themes of nature as well as Far East cultures. She has shown in hundreds of juried and invitational exhibitions and teaches a variety of courses in surface design. She has also offered Batik workshops at BAYarts. Please contact Erin Stack,, to speak about additional possible workshops with Wertheim, or securing a workshop day for your entire group at once.

The one-day Nov. 8 workshop costs $75, plus a $25 materials fee due to the instructor at class time. Visit to sign up, or call 440-871-6543.
