Introduction to The Art of Paper Marbling

One day Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Pippa Pixley

About the course:

Join Pippa Pixley, a member of the International Marbling Network for a creative one day workshop: showing how to make your own beautiful marbled papers.

Marbling is the aqueous surface design method of creating unique and beautiful mono-prints by swirling, rippling, splashing and combining different pigments floated on the surface of a seaweed-based size, and then transferring those patterns directly into prepared papers.

In this workshop you will learn how to set up your size, mix paints, mordant your paper and to create beautiful patterns using various combs. Everyone will leave with beautiful marbled paper, ideas and techniques to try at home.
