NEW! Paper Marbling
Learn the fascinating decorative paper process known as marbling. Students will learn to marble on paper in a single day intensive workshop designed to introduce the process and practice of this historic medium using contemporary tools and materials. Students will learn to mix the bath and colors, prepare paper, and practice many traditional patterns. This “at the tank” class will provide each student with many papers for use in future projects.

Steve Pittelkow Steve Pittelkow's interest in marbled paper stems from a longtime desire to personalize his own bookbinding with distinctive papers. He teaches extensively and enjoys revealing the secrets for successful marbling. Over the years, he has experimented with a wide variety of paints and papers in a quest for materials that allow students a rich and satisfying marbling experience. Steve's papers appear in museum collections and are used by binders and book artists nationally and internationally.
