I had such a lovely Sunday learning all about marbling on the wheel. Sarah is a fantastic and generous teacher, and her studio space is very welcoming. Sarah demonstrated many different marbling techniques and students were then free to work on their own projects at their own pace. The food on the day was delicious too!
