An Introduction To Paper Marbling

All you need to know to start creating beautifully hand marbled paper and stationery. Gemma will guide you through the process step by step.

You will create a number of sheets of marbled paper and a hand marbled notecard with an envelope.

Alternatively, you may wish to collect your work from college at a later date.
