About this Workshop
Have fun while creating fascinating, one-of-a-kind patterns!
Marbling involves floating paints on a surface of thickened liquid and manipulating them to create patterns. This process involves the use of brushes, combs, sticks and other implements to ensure the paint drops around to make swirls, flowers, and organic shapes. It’s then followed by laying specially prepared paper on top of the liquid to pick up the paints. The end results in a unique, beautiful pattern that transforms into abstract art!
Come enjoy and experience this ageless art form in an inspiring artist’s studio. Be mesmerized as you watch fascinating patterns emerge when creating your very own unique work of art.
Note: Children of 10 -13 yrs should be accompanied by an adult.

What happens if I miss a lesson?
We understand that as a busy working adult with multiple schedules to juggle, you may sometimes have to miss a lesson here and there due to last minute work commitments or family matters.
