About this course

Learn how to produce beautiful hand marbled papers. Start with simple Suminagashi, using Chinese inks to produce delicate papers. Then progress to traditional marbling techniques, using gouache paints to produce papers in a set of standard patterns and others of your own design.


Louise Brockman

Louise originally trained and worked as a Secondary School Science Teacher. After juggling full-time teaching with working for the family bookbinding business something had to give, so she left education and now works full-time with her husband Stuart. A long time admirer of marbled paper she took several courses which started an interest in this amazing and satisfying craft.
