About One Stroke Painting Technique
The “One Stroke Technique” is a double loading technique that consists of loading a brush with two separate colors. This technique will enable anyone to reproduce any effect of nature with one easy-to-learn technique. This technique has been used by many generations and is widely used in dragon painting in Japan (Hitofude Ryuu) and in China. It is also used widely in pottery and decorative art in UK from the 1700’s.
The technique has evolved and adapted by many artists through innovations and is used by many contemporary artists in United States such as Donna Dewberry.

Marbling Techniques Workshop
Marbling is a fun and creative way to make free-flowing designs that can later be used in other crafts, collage or as a unique artwork. It’s a very old craft, first emerging in parts of Asia more than a thousand years ago.
In marbling, paint is floated upon a solution, manipulated with various tools then transferred to paper, fabric, wood or leather. You don’t always know exactly how it will come out but the results are always fascinating. In the workshop we will cover the basic technique, learn how to do a few traditional designs and then you can make you own personal designs. At the end of the class you should have some very interesting works on paper and fabric.
The basic materials will be supplied as well as paper and a small wooden box or wooden panel for each student. You may bring fabric, paper, wood or leather to marble. Any kind of natural fiber works well. Wood and leather must be clean and free from varnish or other finishes. If you have marbled works already finished you can bring them to do collage.
