Marbling Workshop with Chena River Marblers

On a chilly January weekend The Delaware Valley Chapter of The Guild of Bookworkers hosted a fabulous 2 day workshop with Chena River Marblers at University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Regina and Dan St. John drove all the way from Amherst in Massachusetts in their van stuffed with marbling equipment and supplies. The previous two days they had ran a marbling workshop at Tyler School of Art, Temple University. 

Regina and Dan have been marbling paper/ fabric - (you name it) for the last 30 years. Their span of knowledge and expertise is quite impressive, along with their generosity and enthusiasm for the art form and technique. Over the 2 day workshop we created around 25 different sheets of paper marbling, (experimenting with different patterns, and trying out the different tools that make the patterns). We also made a journal with a marbled leather binding too!
