Marble Madness

Go to, scroll past the artsy butt cheeks to April 14 and look--if you mumble an "ooh" that has more than two o's in it when you see the paper marbling photo, you've got to check out this class. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, join Paper Nerds for a workshop at We Are 1976 (1902 N. Henderson Ave) on the process of paper marbling. You'll learn to make swirly patterns with carrageenan (an extract from red seaweed) on paper and fabric. Use your marbly creations as bookmarks, wrapping papers, greeting cards or, shit--frame 'em. For what the class will cost you, you most definitely get to call this art. All supplies included. Just bring $65, a desperation to create some badass marbled stuff and an apron. Registration is limited. Call 214-821-1976 or e-mail [email protected]

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
