Presented at:  The Hermits Pond Paper Mill
with special guest artist,  Steve Pittelkow

Saturday, January 29th, 2011 - Sunday, January 30th, 2011   Time: 10:00 am- 4:00  pm.

Students will learn to marble on paper and cloth in this fast-paced  two-day intensive workshop designed to teach fully the process and practices of this historic medium using contemporary tools and materials. Students will learn to mix the bath of colors, complete the preparation of paper and cloth and create many traditional patterns. All students will use full size tanks large enough to accommodate 19'' X 25'' paper. This "at the tank" class will provide each student with a large portfolio of papers for use  in future projects. Tools and tanks will be available to purchase after the class.

As a bookbinder, Steve Pittelkow has been marbling for over 30 years. Steve's papers appear in museum collections and are used by bookbinders and artists in the United States and Europe.

Tuition: $95 for one day, $145  for both days.   Supplies: $25 (included in fee already)  
Deposit: 50%   by December 30th.   Limited to 10 students only.
