Instructor: Keith Garubba

Experience the magic of marbling decorative and abstract papers with this easy-to-pick-
up introductory workshop to a centuries old practice.

Your single session hands-on class will be so much more than a painting party: you'll
have the opportunity to follow your curiosity as you experience the spontaneous magic
of paper marbling and also learn how to control classic, intricate patterns.


You’ll be walked through all the techniques you need to make mesmerizing designs in 16
specially prepared colors of the season.


In this workshop you will:
• Create 10 marbled papers, 12” x 19”, yours to keep.
• Learn 3 basic patterns common in traditional marbling.
• Explore spontaneity in freestyle marble designs.
• Try Ebru Drawing, a way to make pictures in floated inks.


Don’t let the fun stop after your marbling session. Once you’ve taken this workshop,
you might wonder what you can do with your stack of marbled papers! Marbling is
beautiful on its own, but these papers can also be the perfect touch to amplify your
bookmaking or printing projects. Bring your marbled papers to a future session at
Frontline Arts and you’ll have a head start on your masterpiece.

1 Ticket to this event reserves your own marbling station, set of tools, and 10 marble-
ready sheets of paper.

All art and marbling materials will be provided for you at the workshop.


All materials are safe when handled properly, but let me know if you have an allergy or
sensitivity.


This experience can be messy, please dress appropriately. Aprons will be provided, or
wear mess-worthy clothes.


Take this class over and over: every class will be slightly different with seasonal colors,
alternating patterns, and opportunities for you to make new discoveries on your own.
