Please join us in welcoming Len Eisenhood, a master paper marbler, in an exciting and productive workshop.

The history of marbled arts dates back to the 1500's, when Middle-Eastern artisans established classical designs as background for calligraphy or as borders of pages. In the 17th and 18th centuries the art migrated to Europe, where new marbling designs, unique to each country, were developed.
Len Eisenhood is an educator and artist and is currently showing his marbled papers and collaged paintings at The Island Gallery.
