A little about Jane…

Jane Marshall runs the successful business Marshall & Fuller, restoring antique boxes and lining them with her own hand marbled papers.

Jane initially was self taught in the art of marbling, then took a professional course four years ago to further hone her skills and has never looked back.

Jane says “I love my work. It’s both fun and inspiring. Sometimes you never know how the colours and patterns will work out on the finished papers and you never stop learning”

Tips for enjoying the day…

We will be getting very messy (which is part of the fun!), so on the day of the workshop please bring an apron, an old hand towel and a roll of kitchen towel. Please also wear old clothes and preferably not woollen sweaters, as the fibres can interfere with the size (the liquid in the tank).
