A Great Marbling Day! November 1st saw a bunch of eager students have fun with gooey marbling compound and make some really cool creations, all showing their individual style.

After learning how to marble, and experiment on leather scraps, by spreading the compound on glass, and releasing droplets of leather dyes in vivid colours all over the compound with pippets, they then got to use their imagination to swirl the colours around, and then lay their leather onto the compound.

After 5 minutes or so, they lifted the leather off and washed the peices thoroughly to expose some really intricate, beautiful patterns and swirls on leather. 

Once they'd mastered the technique, they marbled and moulded to shape their leather mask, and then made their card holder with suede lining.

This truly is an amazing workshop that all should try.  Other than that its just damn good fun!
