Marmor Paperie

About this school

Lucy McGrath started Marmor Paperie in 2015 with the aim of breathing a new life into the dying art of paper marbling. Having discovered marbling on a holiday to Istanbul, where it is still widely practised, Lucy caught the marbling bug and began ravenously learning all she could about this fascinating craft.

Having learnt bookbinding at university, Lucy quickly realised how well the two crafts complemented each other, so Marmor Paperie was built around hand-made notebooks and sketchbooks covered with her marbled papers.

Lucy was awarded the Cockpit Arts / Arts Society grant in 2016 which funded a studio at craft incubator Cockpit Arts for a year, which allowed her to focus on growing Marmor Paperie and continuing to spread the marbling bug!
