Marbled paper workshop at historical society

Children ages 6 to 12 are invited to a marbled paper workshop Saturday, Sept. 17, 11 to 12:30, at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road.

While swirling inks, and dipping paper into solution, they will learn about the history of marbling, which has been practiced for hundreds of years. Putting their freshly marbled paper to good use, children can make a book cover, either for a book they bring, such as a journal, or for a book provided by the society. There will be marble cake for a snack.

Admission for members is $10 per child, maximum $25 per family; for non-members, $15 per child, maximum $35 per family. Register by emailing or call 203-762-7257.
