Object Marbling Workshop with KUF Studios

Image of object marbling workshops with kuf studios

Create beautiful, colourful marbled objects using a simple hand marbling technique

The marbling paint is dripped onto a water surface, creating unforeseeable patterns which are then transferred to various objects by dipping.

You can decorate baubles, terracotta pots, paper, light bulbs, wooden objects using this technique – your imagination is the limit. Getting in the festive spirit, KUF studios will provide a variety of clear and coloured baubles for experimentation, and will also demonstrate how simple paper cut–outs can be transformed into unique Christmas decorations.

There'll also be a selection of other objects to marble, but feel free to bring along any items you would like to personalise or give new life. The paint is an organic solvent paint and works on most surfaces. It is even possible to marble textiles – just keep in mind that the marble trays are around A4 in size.
