Time: 10:00 - 4:00
Member fee: $85
Non-member fee: $100
For centuries paper marbling was a closely held secret of a few skilled practitioners, but no more. In this one-day workshop you will learn the basics of traditional paper marbling, and make several sheets of your own beautiful marbled paper.  We’ll begin with Stone, and move on to progressively more involved patterns such as Get Gel, Nonpareil, Zebra , and Spanish as well as many others.  All supplies will be provided and are included in the cost of the workshop. Hand-outs will be provided with detailed instructions on how to marble on your own and where to buy supplies.  The workshop will include a guided tour of the marbling exhibit at the Museum.
