Marbling Workshop with Florence from Inq


Florence, the founder of Inq,  will guide you through the fundamentals of paper marbling -  just as it has been practiced for centuries.  A historically secretive craft,  you will be shown the magic behind the mysteries!

Each student will learn at their own marbling tray and will produce at least 5 designs in their chosen colour palette.  

You will be amazed by what you can produce on your first attempts.  No artistic experience is necessary - just an appreciation of colour, pattern and paper.

All equipment will be provided as well as aprons,  but you may still get a little splattered. You will be taught in a small group of just 4 participants and all provided with refreshments during the course.

Warning:  Marbling is highly addictive! 

A small reminder that all places are non refundable but you may tranfser your place to a friend - please inform us immediately of any change to participant.


Founded by designer Florence Saumarez and based in Bath, England,  Inq specialises in designing and producing hand-marbled papers and products. 

She combines traditional techniques with a modern aesthetic that sit as proudly in Georgian townhouses as in industrial loft apartments. The possibilities are endless and joyful. Gouache paints are favoured over modern acrylics, giving their marbled papers a characteristic richness and deep velvety finish.

The final image shows Florence's beautiful papers made into lampshades. It is a great example of the variety and complexity of patterns that can be created. The second image shows a piece of marbling made by a student during a beginners lesson.
