Marvellous Marbling - Halloween Midterm Workshop

The Ancient Art of Japanese & Turkish Marbling has beguiled the World for thousands of years. In conjecture with Graham Crowley's newest exhibition, A Love of Many Things, Children can roll up their sleeves and dive into this unique workshop by Julie Duhy!

Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone. The variety and spontaneous patterns are the result of colours floating on water! The Children will use the artworks from the Graham Crowley exhibition as an inspirational starting point, capturing the spirit of Graham's inventiveness.

The beauty of abstract art will be explored and the idea that paintings can just be patterns, textures & colour blocking, is at the core of this workshop.
