Free event: marbling demonstrations at Cockpit Summer Festival

Posted by Lucy McGrath on

When: Saturday 18 June & Sunday 19 June at 2-2:45pm
Where: Ground floor, Cockpit Deptford, London SE8 3DZ
Cost: Free


Drop by craft incubator Cockpit Deptford (where Marmor Paperie's studio is based) for the annual Summer Festival where our founder, paper marbler Lucy McGrath, will be demonstrating her craft to visitors.

After talking briefly about the history of marbling, Lucy will demonstrate a few hypnotic patterns and will even invite a couple of spectators to have a go themselves!

If you're curious about marbling and how 'painting on water' works, come by on Saturday or Sunday to get a first-hand view.
