Marbling Art Workshop


Come learn how to make hypnotic free flowing patterns on the surface of water and then transfer them to create beautifully marbled paper and fabric. We’ll start with a brief overview of different types of marbling techniques from around the world and then we’ll jump right into experimenting with making designs using various colors, tools, and approaches.

In class we’ll be focusing on the Japanese technique of Suminagashi using water and a special ink, no other crazy additives required! So it’s a wonderfully straightforward craft to continue practicing at home and it’s also one of those “no fail” type projects where even the least craftiest person can make something unique and beautiful. You’ll leave with a set of freshly marbled paper, small cotton drawstring bag, a silk handkerchief, and a new craft addiction!

(optional) Would you like a kit to continue the marbling fun at home after class?

Select the "Class Registration & Marbling Ink Bundle" option (+$20) and you’ll take home from class a set of six 12ml bottles of Boku-Undo marbling inks in red, orange yellow, green, blue, and black. Perfect for use on paper, fabric, leather, and wood!
