This one day workshop will teach participants how to make marbled paper. It will show you the basic skills you need to set up and make patterned papers by floating paint on a liquid size.
The techniques used to make simple patterns will be covered and there will be enough time to create designs of your own.
The course will be taught with a mixture of demonstrations and group discussions, but will mainly involve hands on time producing a range of beautiful patterned papers to take away.
You will learn all the skills required using A4 sized trays and we will use prepared paper in a variety of colours.
As this is a very short course, the liquid size and paper will be prepared beforehand. The tutor will talk you through the processes employed to prepare the materials
All tools and materials included. If you wish to protect your work as you take it home please bring a folder or tube large enough to hold A4 paper.
