At the end of the course, you will have a selection of your own handmade paper pieces.
A centuries-old art, Paper Marbling is a fun and creative way to decorate paper with stunning patterns. The course will take you through the history of marbling, introduce you to the tools, materials and techniques used in this craft and enable you to experiment with colours, inks and paints to create a variety of traditional and contemporary marbling designs.
Paper is an inexpensive sculptural material. Pliable and easily folded, pleated, cut and manipulated with simple tools. Three-dimensional shapes from simple to complex and can be useful for artists, architects, fashion designers and milliners. Learn some key basic techniques − hand folding, scoring and manipulation. The sessions will also cover tools and types of paper best suited for this art form. Please note we do not cover paper engineering for pop-up books.
