Paper Marbling for Kids (5+ Years)

Learn how to marble paper at home for kids



1.5 hours Class size 6 to 30     label $20

Get creative these Melbourne school holidays and marble your own paper!

In this live online class, kids will learn how to marble paper using everyday materials. They will learn the art of marbling using shaving cream and learn a whole heap of techniques for making beautiful patterns.

Your space will look like a science experiment but kids will make some truly beautiful paper to dry at home and use for any purpose.

This is a fun, calming and creative workshop suitable for kids in grades one to nine (younger students may require supervision, but the workshop is carefully staged to ensure everyone can participate with ease).

No creative experience is necessary.


Knowledge required
Beginner-friendly.
 
What to bring
  • An apron or an old shirt
  • An old cloth to keep your workspace clean
  • Space for the paper to dry (a piece of foil spread over a baking tray, for example)
  • Sheets of paper cut into smaller squares and rectangles (thicker paper is definitely better, but you can experiment with all kinds, including printer paper)
  • A dinner plate
  • Kitchen paper
  • A square of thick cardboard to act as a squeegee
  • A large bowl
  • Some skewers or a butter knife
  • Gloves (to protect hands from staining)
  • A can of shaving cream
  • Food dye (preferably in the little dropper bottles, not the big bottles)
  • Watercolour or acrylic paint, and some brushes (if using watercolour, also have some water ready to mix it with)
  • A pen, preferably black
Suitable for

This is a fun indoor activity, suitable for adults, and kids (minimum 5 years old). Adult accompaniment is not required.

A great little workshop to keep kids entertained and the creative juices flowing during the school holidays/lockdown. Clear, easy to follow instructions and plenty of time (and encouragement) to experiment and share results with the rest of the class. A lovely way to spend the morning. Thank you!
