Lynden is offering a series of holiday giftmaking workshops in November and December. They range from simple activities suitable for families with smaller children to more advanced workshops for adults. To enhance the celebratory spirit, we will have light refreshments available for participants. Whether you are making a gift for yourself or another, these workshops should provide a cheerful atmosphere for art making as we head into winter. To see a complete list of holiday giftmaking workshops, visit our Workshops page.

Marbling is the ancient art of "floating" paints on a water bath, then combing and raking them into intricate patterns. In this workshop, you will learn how to apply acrylic paints to a water bath and create beautiful one-of-a-kind papers. You will go home with 12 or more of your own papers for use in your next project, from bookbinding to card making to paper crafting. Wear your "painting clothes," and consider bringing an apron.
