What you'll do

The pandemic has certainly taken a toll! As an artist & meditator I designed this experience to be a creative antidote to stress & a take home tool to help us embrace uncertainty. I guide my guests towards the beauty of surrendering to life's present moment & into the psychological wellbeing of the creative flow state via the ancient mediative art of Japanese ink marbling.
Not only do my guests leave the workshop relaxed & with a new creative skill set they can then replicate at home, but with prints of their creative work to take with them & s
We start with a relaxing cup of herbal tea in my lounge & a brief history of marbling. After which I guide my guests through an easy to follow guided meditation to relax my guests, enhance our feeling of wellbeing & prepare us to enter the flow state of creativity fully relaxed & free from the everyday stress of the world outside.
Following on is a practical demonstration of the techniques involved in Japanese marbling. Guests are then invited to get creative themselves in the relaxed supportive environment of my home to create individual works of marbling art with all materials supplied.
I ensure there is good hygiene & ventilation throughout the experience. Suitable for children from age 12, unless you are a family and book all four spaces. Message me your requirements I may be able to accommodate diff start time group bookings.

I'm a surface designer and have also been practicing meditation for over a decade. I studied at Glasgow School of Art and came across the art of Japanese marbling after moving to beautiful Brighton. I instantly fell in love with this relaxing ancient technique. It perfectly merges art and crafts with the mediative practice of mindfulness.

Lisa was a very thoughtful and fun host, I really had a lovely time in her company and learned a lot about paper marbling! I really appreciated that she followed all Covid protocol, so the whole experience was really relaxing. Thanks Lisa!

Lovely experience! Lisa is knowledgeable and really friendly, and you come away with a new skill! Easily accessible for all skill levels (we're not very arty people), would recommend! Also, her flat is a really beautiful space.

Lisa was a wonderful host and expertly guided my daughter and I through a meditation session, before demonstrating and explaining the delicate art of Japanese ink marbling. We created some unexpected delights and left with a sense of serenity, achievement and several unique pieces of self-created artwork which we will cherish!

Lisa's workshop was relaxing and informative. Having no prior knowledge of marbelling but a love of all things creative, we thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of marbelling and the process of how to do it for ourselves. Would definitely recommend!
