Try it yourself!

Workshops & Courses

Marbling is unlike any other form of print making. More akin to abstract painting, it’s a collaboration between the water and the marbler – the more you try to control the process, the less it does what you want. It's exciting, cathartic and always addictive.

Group workshops

Join Marmor Paperie's founder Lucy McGrath at Cockpit's Deptford studios to learn how to set up your marbling bath and prepare paper, get tips and tricks to for achieving perfect patterns and, most importantly, have fun creating 7-9 of your own beautiful papers.

We have partnered with talented bookbinder Amy Kitcherside of The Idle Bindery to bring you a full day of marbling and bookbinding. 

As well as getting a complete introduction to marbling, you will then be guided through the process of using your marbled papers to make three books, giving you an introductory look at the traditional craft of bookbinding.

NEW: Drop-in Marbling Sessions

A more flexible approach for those of you who have fallen in love with marbling but find that life gets in the way of experimenting with it.

Limited (for now) to people who have attended any of our Introduction or Intermediate workshops, these sessions are designed for people who know the basics already and want to further explore the magic of marbling at their own pace. There won't be guided tutoring but a Marmor Paperie staff member will be on hand to assist.
