In this workshop you will make 4 classic patterns and take home your own marbled papers that you can use to create book covers, wrapping paper, origami, framed art, stationary, collages, and more.
The workshop will start with a brief history and description of the process of marbling paper and a demonstration. I will work 1-on-1 with each person following each pattern demonstration to ensure that you have 4 beautiful hand marbled papers to bring home with you once they have dried.
Floating Paint On Water
Floating ink or paint on water has been documented in Japan as early as 986 CE. Marbled papers became wildly popular in the 17th and 18th centuries across Europe and the Middle East.
It is an art form made of recipes and secrets that have been passed through many generations and apprenticeships. Due to the protective nature that many Marblers have had about their process, it has not been well documented throughout history and today it is considered an endangered art form. Join me in keeping the spirit of marbling alive!
