Marbling Mania
March 7th & 8th
Friday and Saturday, 10:00-5:00

The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers and the Book
Arts Program present Galen Berry. Recall the beautiful, multicolored,
patterned pastedowns of old books? Learn to make professional-quality,
marbled papers in this stirring workshop! An amazing number of patterns
are presented: peacock, stone marble, Spanish wave, feather, nonpareil,
French curl, Italian vein, and flowers. Slightly more complex techniques
such as thistle, moire, fantasy wave, antique spot, and ripple are
covered the second day. Participants experiment with overmarbling and
masking, and learn proper use of marbling ingredients. Working on paper
and fabric, each participant takes home up to thirty marbled sheets.
Galen Berry, a self-taught marbling artist, developed his techniques
through experimentation with arcane instructions and strange ingredients
over the last seventeen years. Galen sells his work nationwide and
graciously passes on his secrets to students numbering in the thousands.
