Introduction to Paper Marbling with Nataliia Dragunova


Have a fantastic experience of paper marbling in this 2 hour workshop. This workshop includes a introduction to the history and the many techniques of marbling and the materials. You will get the opportunity to use two to three different colour combinations to make 6 - 10 A3 size unique sheets.

All materials are provided. 

This workshop is for Ebru marbling. The water for the workshop is prepared 2-3 days in advance. Nataliia uses natural dyes, horse hair brushes and special combs to make designs. None of these materials are available for sale in Ireland. It's therefore very difficult to replicate this technique at home after. But at the same time this is our most popular workshop. The experience is almost magical, the paper you make will amaze you.

We do supply Suminagashi Inks for marbling in the shop. This is for a different type of marbling that can be done using unprepared water at home.

Nataliia Dragunova, is a qualified architect and interior designer from Kyiv, Ukraine.
She was introduced to marbling in 2011 when she saw the works of Turkish Ebru master Fatih Yesil, who later become her teacher.
Up to Feb 2022 she lead regular master classes in Kyiv for Marbling as Art and produced marbled papers for old book restoration.
She also started to use marbled patterns in interiors by transferring them on gyps, wood and fabric.
" I believe, this unique old technique can magically inspire and influence people the same way as it changed and embellished my life."

Would highly recommend - Magda travelled by train from Cork

I thoroughly enjoyed the introduction to marbling course. Natallia is knowledgable and enthusiastic about marbling and it was a pleasure to learn from her, as well as spend time with other creatives. I received my dried and flattened marbled papers in the post and I am really pleased with the results. Very excited to continue experimenting with marbling! Would highly recommend for a mindful and fun activity”


Workshop was amazing I learned and tried Turkish art of Ebru as Turkish person in the snowy day of Dublin. What a chance to join this one. Colors were unbelievable in my vision. Thank you Natalia and team of Liberties Papers.

A magical experience

I recently attended both the Introduction to Marbling in the morning and the Historical Patterns class in the afternoon. Both Sheila and Nataliia were incredibly helpful, upbeat and encouraging. I had a magical experience and I now have a collection of beautiful marbled samples that I created! I'll definitely be back. Thanks so much.

We really enjoyed our afternoon workshop

We really enjoyed our afternoon workshop. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our tutor was so enthusiastic about marbling it rubbed off on us all. There was some amazing designs and we both agreed it would be lovely to come again - we also loved the shop - not enough time to look at everything so we’ll definitely have to return. Thanks again.

Thoroughly recommend it

Loved the Marbling Workshop with Nataliya at Liberties Papers. Was amazed that after one workshop I had some lovely pieces to take home with me. Natiliya's experience shone through in her ability to guide us through the process and share not just techniques but interesting facts on this ancient technique. Would thoroughly recommend this enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.
