Marbled paper making

your own personally marbled paper

your own personally marbled paper

Learn how the much admired Florentine paper is made!  Enjoy yourself as you design your unique piece of paper to take home and keep – or wrap up a special gift for a loved one with a touch of Italian style –

The cost for watching £12/€10 – To make and keep your own €35 one sheet, €45 for two sheets – I strongly recommend two attempts as the second on is nearly always better!

These courses can be arranged with limited notice – but it does take 3 days for them to prepare the special glue they use so the more notice the better.
