What happens in this class?

This workshop builds on our 'one day intro to marbling' session, and is perfect for those wanting to take their marbling to the next level.

During the session you will:

  • Become reacquainted with the marbling bath and basic patterns
  • Mix up all your own inks (from pre-made paints), and learn how to mix inks to achieve specific effects
  • Learn more advanced patterns and techniques
  • Learn how to make ready-made metallics work for you

There will also be chance for you to try out any different paints/patterns/papers that you bring with you with a tutor on hand…

Things to remember

Marbling can be a delightfully messy process, so it can be useful to wear old clothing, however we do have a few marbling aprons for those who would like to use one. There will be teas/coffees/other drinks on hand, and definitely a biscuit or two! Please also be…

I caught the paper marbling bug after attending Freya's class (Marbling Part 1) last year and was eager to learn more! Working with elusive metallic paints and getting them to stick to the paper was a highlight - I am so pleased with how beautiful and shiny the end results are!

Fantastic! Would definitely recommend the lovely Freya for any of the classes she teaches. She's really patient, kind and super creative. LOTS of hands on making. Really good value and such a lovely way to spend a Saturday. I'm just waiting for a part 3.

Excellent follow-on class! CONTENT After a warm-up to refresh skills and get a feel of the size, we moved on to learning several more patterns. Not only did Freya teach us the sequences for these patterns, she also focused on the kind of colour combinations that shows these patterns to best effect. After lunch we moved on to working with metallic paints. As off-the-shelf metallic paints can be tricky, Freya focused on teaching us how to work to the strengths of these paints and encouraged us to try vaining to maximise the potential of these paints. Even though there was a good focus on mixing techniques for different types of paints, the workshop moved on at a good pace allowing us lots of time to experiment. PRACTICALITIES Very clear pre-workshop email with directions. Plenty of tea and coffee during the day and tea and biscuits in the afternoon to re-energise for finishing on a high with Spanish Waves Adorable studio dog providing silent encouragement.

Paper Marbling Part Two was another excellent workshop. Great fun and highly informative, the day was an opportunity to have a refresher of basic techniques, an opportunity to learn new ones and pick up troubleshooting tips. Freya is an inspiring teacher and students are well looked after with nice refreshments and canine company from Ludo the dog. A unique experience and well worth travelling from Birmingham for.

Fantastic opportunity to try out new patterns and paints. It was a great way to help me to develop my skills and troubleshoot what I'd been trying since the beginners class.
Caroline - March 31st
A great workshop building on marbling skills learnt in the beginners marbling workshop. Freya is a very knowledgable tutor who is friendly and engaging. She skilfully steered us through lots of new marbling techniques and there were plentiful cups of tea and biscuits too. Ludo the dog was a highlight of the workshop stealing Freya's limelight with impressively bendy dog-yoga moves!
