This is a fast-paced and energetic course led by paper marbler and Creative Dimension Trust tutor Lucy McGrath. Marbling is a fascinating technique that lies somewhere between painting, print-making and science – paints are floated onto a bath of thickened water and manipulated to make beautiful designs. Traditionally associated with bookbinding, Lucy is on a mission to modernise the craft, using a range of innovative techniques and materials.
Students will be guided through a variety of different techniques, gradually building up technical skill. They will learn Japanese suminagashi and traditional combed patterns, as well as expressive swirls and modern wave techniques.
This workshop will start daily at 10am and finish at approximately 4:30pm.
