Marbling is addictive – fact! If you love colour, pattern and all things paper, then this is the class for you! Join marbler and bookbinder Freya Scott for a day learning this fantastic heritage craft.

On this one day introductory course you will learn:

– how to prepare the marbling bath
– how to mix paints
– what paper to use
– how to prepare your paper for marbling
– how to make traditional and contemporary patterns using marbling tools

By the end of the day you will have the skills to produce your very own designs at home. You will also have created a stack of your own papers which if dry you can take home. If your papers need more drying time they can be sent or collected later if they needed.

Please note there is a £5 material charge payable on the day.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

Everything will be provided but wear clothes you don't mind getting messy
