This workshop is an introduction to paper marbling, a method of printmaking in which paint is floated and manipulated on the surface of thickened water to create a mesmerizing design that’s then transferred to paper as a permanent print. Marbling is a monoprint process, so each piece of marbled paper is completely unique.

Hosted by Allison Connell of Stone & Vein, the workshop begins with a brief overview of materials, process and technique before participants dive into the marbling baths to create a set of their own marbled papers. After spending time exploring colors and patterns, participants can also try the technique on a set of paper coasters, envelopes and more.

Participants should bring an apron or wear clothes they wouldn't mind getting paint on.
