Marbling paper is a surface design method that dates back hundreds of years. The process goes by different names depending on where you are but the result is all the same. You will learn to marble paper by floating pigments, combing through colors, and dipping your paper into the design.

The swirling patterns will mesmerize you and make you want to marble for hours and hours! Marbled papers can beautify a shelf or small table top, be sent as a thank you or love note, enhance a scrapbook, or be placed behind a photo or artwork as unique matting. The list goes on.

    This class was a fun event for my husband and I & we left with some nice paper at the end. Teacher was very effective but laid back. Class was byob so we enjoyed a beer while marbling. Overall great date night.

    This class was so fun! You get to instantly see your creation come to life, and there's not really a learning curve - you just get started marbling and you get interesting results right away. Definitely something to try!
