I have wanted to do "real" paper marbling forever! I've got loads of books on the topic and I've watched videos and thought about it, but I knew that I needed the gentle shove of an in-person class. I did my research and finally found one! And you know what? It was flipping fantastic! I love, love, loved it so much!
Cristina Hajosy hosts small (we were three students) workshops in her home studio. She was very warm and welcoming and fed us some amazing homemade food!
The printing process is both complicated and simple and therefore endlessly satisfying. Take a peek at the fun we had:
Cristina even taught us how to marble paper lanterns:
The prints we made were so divine:
Here are the ones I made:
I love them! My assistant, Suzanne, saw the prints and she suggested they'd make great phone cases. So, I took her advice and picked a few of my favorites and made some phone cases and other fun things from them.
I'm excited to do more marbling! Thanks for stopping by!
