Come get a sneak peek of the space before we do the full reveal here on the blog and meet fellow paper-loving people in the area. It’ll be so fun â€“ come hang with us!

Second, I’m absolutely THRILLED to welcome Baltimore-based instructor Kelly Laughlin to teach us all about the magic of paper marbling! Have you ever taken a paper marbling class? Paper marbling has been at the top of my list for workshops at Common Room Studio, and just generally something that I’ve wanted to learn since I started writing Oh So Beautiful Paper â€“ I can’t wait to learn all about this beautiful process from Kelly! Youâ€™ll explore water marbling and create your own collection of marbled papers just in time for writing a letter a day for National Letter Writing month! The class is $50, with all materials provided and no previous experience necessary. Register right here!
Are you coming on Saturday or Sunday?? I can’t wait to see you there!
