Discover the traditional and meditative technique of painting on water: marble your own paper designs in your favourite colours and experiment with this art also known as suminagashi or ebru.
Traditional Marbling Techniques with a Modern Twist
Don't get scared by the word "traditional": My paper marbling technique is totally from this century! Marbling paper can be challenging, but I will teach you a practical way of doing it, so you can achieve high-quality paper designs in a very short time. During my marbling workshops, we will work with a bright and modern colour palette for a contemporary look.
Meditate by Creating Marbling Art
Marbling is my very art of meditation. The simple act of applying drops of paint over the marbling bath and seeing how the colours interact and mix with each other is satisfying and relaxing. When marbling, you lose some control over the piece of art you are creating. If you are a paper marbling master, you might get to reproduce more sheets of paper with the same design. But even so, each paper is a real one-of-a-kind piece of art. During my paper marbling workshops, I will show you how to create standard patterns. But you will also have the chance to explore your own creativity and create your very own designs.
Learning by Doing
That's my methodology! We will get our hands dirty in the process and learn from our own mistakes. All my marbling workshops are very practical. After a short introduction into the basic marbling tools and supplies, we will start creating step-by-step and answer all questions right away. After the workshop, you will have the option to contact me via e-mail for extra advice any time you need it!
On- and Offline Workshops
My bookbinding and paper studio is based in Munich, Germany. Most of my marbling workshops take place in Munich. However, every now and then I organize workshops in other German cities and also in The Netherlands.
Thanks to the Internet, you can also join one of my online marbling workshops from any corner of the earth! Feel free to contact me for private online classes.
Marbling Workshops in German, English and Spanish
We learn easier and faster when we learn in our mother-tongue, don't we? I am fluent in German, English and Spanish and can answer all your questions about marbling in these languages. So, don't hesitate to join one of my marbling workshops in your mother tongue!
Groups and Private Workshops
You deserve time and attention. Therefore all my marbling workshops are limited to small groups with up to 8 participants. This way we can answer all your questions about the different marbling techniques and you can work at your own pace.
If you prefer, you can also book a private marbling workshop: from 1-on-1 on-site marbling lessons to online courses, or tailor-made workshops for your family or company event. Contact me here for more information and offers.
Everything you need to know about my creative workshops
Please understand that I count with you for the workshop preparations. And I hope that nothing will keep you from joining us. However, if that turns out to be the case, please take the following deadlines into consideration:
If you cannot attend the workshop, but want to give your ticket to another person, you are welcome to do so. Please send me an e-mail with the contact details of the person that will attend the workshop instead of you.
In case that the workshop has to be cancelled from my side, you will get a 100% reimbursement of your ticket.
I am fluent in German, English and Spanish and would love to teach you the secrets of marbling in all these 3 languages! Take a look at my workshop calendar for upcoming courses and workshops available in German, English and Spanish.
If you book a private workshop, you can of course choose the language of the class.>
Furthermore, my marbling workshops are very practical, so even if you are not completely fluent in German, English or Spanish, you will be able to follow the class!
You need zero prior experience to join one of my marbling workshops. In fact, all the courses and workshops I am currently offering are for beginners.
I will teach you the basic marbling techniques with all my tips & tricks and step-by-step.
If you have already joined a marbling workshop, but you just want to refresh the technique, you are also more than welcome!
Not at all! My workshops are all-inclusive, which means you can use all my marbling tools during the class at no extra cost. Besides, you will receive a material kit at the beginning of the workshop. This kit contains a well-sorted selection of papers and other crafts supplies to be used on the class projects.
After the workshop, you can purchase marbling supplies in the Indigo Shop with a special discount :)
My bookbinding and paper studio is located nearby the subway station Poccistraße (U3/U6). Parking on the street in big cities like Munich can be challenging. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee you a parking spot.
I really hope so! The goal of my bookbinding and marbling workshops is to inspire you and teach you the basic techniques, so you can keep creating at home.
For some marbling projects, you might need special tools and materials, which you can purchase in the Indigo Shop at a discounted rate after the workshop.
Besides, you can always reach me via e-mail in case you have any question or need craft advice, or you can book a 1-on-1 online or offline lesson to refresh or improve the technique.
Mastering the art of marbling can take some time and it will definitely be challenging in the beginning, but as they say: Practise makes the master. So keep creating!
