I had a great day at Freya's paper marbling course. Apart from learning a brief history of the art, we learnt how to prepare the paper, mix and prepare the paint, and make the size in which we applied our paint colours. We had ample time to have a go at making our patterned paper, with splattering and using special implements to make varied patterns. I took home with me a range of patterned papers I had done, and I look forward to doing some more at home. Thank you, Freya and your delightful, calm dog Ludo.
Can't recommend this workshop highly enough. Freya was the best teacher - extremely knowledgeable, patient and lovely. It was the most mindful, fulfilling day I've had in ages, thoroughly enjoyed every minute. So interesting to be taken through the history before learning the techniques. I feel like I'm quickly going to get hooked on marbling and can't wait to book on the intermediate course!
I had the best time taking part in this workshop. Everyone was so friendly, coffee/tea on tap, a relaxed atmosphere and just a lovely environment for learning and creativity. Freya is a great teacher. The pace of the class was just right... enough information for us to understand the process and begin to identify behaviours of the different materials, with quick demos and then plenty of time to practice. She makes it look so easy! Looking forward to receiving my pieces in the post, and excited to make use of the kit I bought to use at home. Thanks so much!
I really enjoyed the Paper Marbling workshop at Paperwilds. I'd wanted to do it for some time and it didn't disappoint. Freya was really lovely and helpful, she explained the process really well and was a great teacher. The process is really fun and strangely relaxing because you get so into it. There's so much potential to experiment with different colour combinations and patterns. I hope to come back at some point to do the advanced course.
