Learn how to ‘paint on water’ using centuries-old marbling techniques to create 7-9 of your own beautiful papers.

If you love playing with paint or getting creative with paper, this workshop is for you. Marbling is one of the most rewarding and fun crafts out there – plus it’s virtually impossible to do it ‘wrong’!


What to Expect

During this fast-paced three-hour workshop, you will be given a thorough introduction to the beautiful art of paper marbling, including a brief history, the technical ‘do’s and ‘don’t’s, and a lot of trying it out.

Paper marbling is a centuries-old art where paint is floated upon a bath of thickened water and drawn through with various tools to create striking, fluid patterns. In this marbling workshop, you will learn:

  • how to make the thickened water
  • how to prepare paper for marbling
  • techniques for controlling the behaviour of the paints
  • how to create all kinds of beautiful patterns.

Contemporary paper marbler Lucy McGrath will demonstrate various techniques and talk you through how to recreate them yourself, providing all the tools, equipment and materials you might need to get really experimental.Marbling is great fun but super messy so make sure you wear old clothes (and shoes)! You don’t need to bring anything except a healthy dose of creativity.

You can opt to get your favourite paper made into a beautiful hand-bound sketchbook, notebook or diary at 30% off the RRP, an exclusive offer for marbling workshop attendees. Perfect for a special gift or memento.


If you can no longer attend the workshop, please contact us to let us know at least 7 days before the event for a full refund or rebooking onto a suitable date. Please note that we can only rebook your place once.
