From May 13th to June 4th my talented sister Philo Ouweleen will have a retrospective exhibition of her artwork in Galerie De Stoker at Witte de Withstraat 124 in Amsterdam. A big part of Philo's work is inspired by Japan and I highly encourage you to go and have a look if you are in the Netherlands. If you want to find out more about Philo on her website, click here or see the flyer at the bottom of the page.
As part of the program, supported by Fonds voor West, there will also be 4 workshops that revolve around art on paper. Justyna Kleczar and I will give a workshop on June 4th in which we will teach the art of paper marbling. During the 2-hour workshop we will demonstrate different marbling techniques. With all supplies provided, the participants will have the opportunity to create their own original marbled paper that can be used for a variety of purposes, including bookbinding, card making and art projects.
Yesterday, in preparation for the workshop, Justyna and I did a marbling session. It has been a while since we did any marbling so it was good to refresh our memory and check the quality of our supplies. Justyna also made some new combs by hand, which we tested out and they proved to be awesome. We took some pictures and videos to share on social media.
