About this Workshop:

This workshop will introduce you to the basics of traditional paper marbling, including both combed and stone patterns. The history of marbling will be discussed, along with how to make tools and the materials needed for marbling on your own.  In addition to marbling sheets of paper, you will have the opportunity to experiment with marbling on other surfaces, such as wood, leather, and fabric.

Level: Beginner

Registration has been extended to October 3, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class.

Registration includes a $40 materials fee to cover all materials, which will be provided in class. Students may want to consider a few optional supplies, including:

  • Personal apron (waterproof is recommended, but a sturdy kitchen apron will do)
  • Sturdy shoes with good tread—the studio floor can get a bit slippery when wet. Comfortable shoes are key though, as you’ll be on your feet most of the day.
  • Any personal papers and/or other substrates to experiment on (details will be provided at registration)
