Marbling Merriment

Create your own festive decorations using paper craft and marbling techniques in this family workshop.

What to expect

Coming together to share food, gifts, and company is an important part of any celebration. This holiday season, create your very own decorations and make your celebrations look extra special as the Design Museum builds a communal table of handmade marbled creations. Whether you’re in need of party plates, wrapping paper, or lanterns to light up the night, we’ll design and make something to use, to gift or to share together at your seasonal celebrations. Practice paper crafting, testing and learning new marbling techniques, before applying the patterns to your festive products.
