Paper Marbling Workshops

I have been developing some ideas for new workshops. The next workshop will be a paper marbling workshop. This will be held on Saturday May 4th 2019. Other workshops will be held monthly on the first weekend of each month, usually Saturday. I will be continuing the mosaic workshops and will also be offering an advanced mosaic workshop. Then there will be a series of workshops coming up during the SALA festival, concentrating on different types of paper craft. They are all being held at Mclaren Unvaled, 122 Main Rd, Mclaren Vale.

I am focusing on ideas to use materials that are already found around the house, or are inexpensive to buy. Bookings can be made through Eventbrite.

The first workshop, Paper Marbling focuses on a very old art form, designed to create amazing patterns and decorative papers. These can then be used as gift cards, decorative papers for origami or scrap booking, wrapping paper or as base papers for other arts.

In this workshop we will discover how to use normal household items and inexpensive acrylic paints to create these great designs. Then I will show you a variety of things they can be made into.

This is a relaxing and addictive art form, creating a myriad of designs both modern and traditional. You can add your own unique finish to gifts and people will be amazed at how creative you can be. No special skills are required, only some patience and a little practice, and you can achieve these amazing results. This is a great activity to do with a group of friends whilst learning new skills.

You will learn how to transform these patterns of floating paint into these intricate designs. Then you can create these other products and use your amazing papers.
