If you've been looking for a fun group activity for your friends or a team-building event to spark your colleagues' imagination, this London workshop will introduce you to the colourful world of marbling. Marbling involves floating a rainbow of coloured inks on the surface of a water bath, creating beautiful shapes and patterns that you can then transfer to paper, ceramics or fabric.

Hosted by Recess Living founder Nina Elegba, you'll be exploring a variety of different marbling techniques from across the globe, learning how to mix your own marbling paints and inks and how you can use these alluring patterns to customise your own stationery, homewares and fabrics.

Because of the unpredictable nature of marbling, it's a brilliant way to switch off from your worries, embrace any imperfections and just go with the flow. You'll leave the class relaxed, rejuvenated and with some gorgeous marbled goodies to take home with you.
