WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Now you can learn how to print your own marbled paper created in the Turkish tradition. This really is akin to creating an abstract painting, as you manipulate paint and water.
Back in the 1970’s you could walk through a charming arcade that linked Basil Street to Knightsbridge. In the arcade, a little shop opened - Papeterie. It stocked paper jewels.
Not literally, but this small Aladdin's cave sold Florentine paper. It was the first time Londoners had seen this exquisite art form. No fashionista worth their salt would be seen without something marbled - a pencil was the bare minimum. They cost a fortune, and for a month’s salary it might be possible to add a notebook, the lampshades remained out of reach
TELL ME MORE
The method for creating the paper has not changed for centuries and is actually a craft that is ‘endangered’ with only ten professional marblers left in the UK. This is a serious workshop. You will be learning under the tuition of Lucy McGrath, who works and sells from a studio in Cockpit Arts.
