Marbling paper is a surface design method that dates back hundreds of years. The process goes by different names depending on where you are but the result is all the same. By floating pigments, combing through colors, and dipping your paper into the design the swirling patterns will mesmerize you and make you want to marble for hours and hours! Marbled papers can beautify a shelf or small table top, be sent as a thank you or love note, enhance a scrapbook, or be placed behind a photo or artwork as unique matting. All materials will be provided and by the end of the class you'll walk away with several sheets of your own gorgeous, hand-marbled papers.
$35 per person
