Marbling Workshops

Now and again we are able to offer various workshop options.

Once or twice a year we fill the car up and head down to Devon to the Blackdown Hills where we teach an informal and fun marbling workshop in amazing surroundings at The Old Kennels. 
We are teaching a beginners marbling workshop in May and an improvers workshop in July.

Last Saturday 12th March we held a workshop in Salisbury for a bookbinding group.
It was a really fun day and we were so lucky as the weather was great with hardly any wind so it meant that we could dry the marbled papers outside - always a bonus as it means the papers can dry much quicker. 

These workshops are light-hearted and focus on producing exciting and fun designs based on many traditional techniques like Turkish Spots and Spanish Ripples as well as creating Ebru pieces. 
Me and Craig run the workshops together which ensures that everything runs ship shape and we can attend to everyones questions. Its always difficult to find the time to take too many photographs but I kept my phone in my apron pocket and remembered to take a few snaps, so there are some pictures  below from the day, albeit not great quality ones! 

Workshops are generally only undertaken within about an hours travel time of our own workshop and are dependant upon the facilities at the space, we need lots of space and good access to water. 
At the current time we are unable to travel to London for workshops but this may change in the future. 

I also run 1-2-1 workshops from our studio here in Wiltshire. Dates are fairly infrequent, perhaps just one or two a month, so if you would like to be notified of future dates you can email us on jemmamarbling@sky.com and we will contact you with dates as they become available.
These workshops at our studio are 4 hour afternoon sessions where we cover many aspects of paper marbling and you get to produce full sized sheets - 510mm x 750mm which will be yours to keep.
