Water Marbling Workshop

Mesmerising morphing inks captured on wearable fabric!

2 hours Class size 1 to 12 (public classes), 4 to 15

label $85 (or 4 payments of $21.25 Afterpay)

This water marbling workshop with In Aetheria introduces you to the vivacious art of water marbling, as uniquely applied in all printmaking seen in the brand's clothing and products.

Amanda takes you into her approach to the art and facilitates the session whilst allowing ample time for exploration into how you wish to approach your creation -- there is no right or wrong way!

Once the basics are relayed, feel free to play with the inks in the marbling bath which offers quite visually stimulating, video share worthy footage (oh, please do share footage on instagram and tag us, you will receive a 10% discount to use in the studio store for spreading the love!)

You are welcome to first try it out on paper which is also provided if you do not feel comfortable transferring straight onto the fabric.

Not to mention, the mesmerising way the inks morph and move provide quite a therapeutic nature to the whole experience.

This workshop is truly special in how you are provided with the materials prepped beforehand via a mordanting process using potash alum. This enables the creation of your own wearable art on fabric that is completely wash-fast after the ink dries, is rinsed, and then ironed to set permanently.

The fabric probably won't dry in time to take home so you are either welcome to come back another day to pick it up, or you may select to have your pieces mailed out to you as an optional add on.

The fabric must be also be rinsed after the ink has transferred, and then ironed. If you would prefer this be done by Amanda, this is an optional add-on.

This water marbling class is perfect for any group or solo event. Whether you're trying something new with a friend or looking for romantic date night ideas, gather your loved ones along to this relaxing class.

Please note:

  • In Aetheria studio is up a flight of 13 steps.
  • Postage is mainly required if you have selected a larger 180cm length scarf or fabric piece and you are unable to return at a later date, and/or if you have chosen the add-on for Amanda to rinse and heat set at the studio and cannot return another day to pickup.
  • Class times may vary sightly due to amount of attendees, the time you give yourself to approach the marbling bath, and the amount of optional add ons chosen (which can also be added once you arrive at the studio). It is quite a free flowing approach. Please leave regimented mentalities at the door - be ready to let go and just relax!

Amanda is the creatrix behind the ever-evolving world In Aetheria. An interactive offering showcasing her own unique spin on the art of water marbling finessed over years of experimentation. This is paired with her study of fashion design, being an alumnus of Bachelor of Fashion Design (honours) RMIT. Thus, at this stage, her products are being worked predominantly into clothing.
However, the only limit is one's imagination! She is flowing with ideas on how the marbling may be worked into a plethora of product /interior design and art pieces.

Thus, opening up her studio was the obvious direction! To be able to share this art with others, offer the nuanced way in which she applies it to fabrications, and inspire attendees of her workshop to develop their creations into their own unique outcomes.
