Workshop: Paper Marbling with Louise Brockman
January 11 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£30 – £35
Louise is a graduate of Liverpool University and a former science school teacher. After 10 years of teaching she joined her family’s bookbinding business combining administrative duties with paper marbling. Louise uses traditional methods and techniques to produce modern coloured papers using a variety of coloured backgrounds.
In this workshop we will learn the basics of setting up the paper marbling equipment and materials. We will work through a series of patterns and there will be plenty of time for participants (working in pairs) to create their own designs.
A lot of liquid will be used in the course of the day and the floor and table tops will necessarily be wet and slippery. Appropriate footwear should, therefore, be worn. Please bring an apron if you have one and leave your Sunday best clothes in the wardrobe!
Louise will supply the paper that we will be marbling but if anyone wants to bring some paper of their own for marbling feel free to do so. Louise will have some of her own lovely marbled paper with her for sale on the day.
£30 (members), £35 (non-members). Please deduct the early-bird discount of £5 if booking by 11 November 2019
