Learn the art of the traditional paper marbling at this fun and relaxing class in Sydney. You will take home your very own marbled papers.

This workshop is perfect for beginners, as it will cover all the tips and techniques for successful traditional marbling. Your experienced instructor, Isabelle McGowan, will demonstrate traditional styles as well as free-form techniques. You will be given the recipe for making your own size and marbling paint mixtures.

Your instructor will demonstrate:

  • Preparing your own size
  • Mixing paint
  • How to create various tradition and free form marble designs
  • Edge marbling
  • Marbling with fabric

Come along and have fun creating your very own marbled papers. You are welcome to bring your own paper, fabric and book for edge marbling or anything else you want to experiment with and marble to your heart's content.

This is a highly specialised workshop and therefore tailored to a personal one-to-one experience. You can have up to four people in a class if you book together as a group. This ensures that each individual will be able to experiment and work in peace without jostling for space.
