The Magic of Paper Marbling


Tuesday, March 15 Time: 6:00 – 7:30 pm | Cost: $10
North Bennet Street School
Boston, MA

Regina and Dan St.John of Chena River Marblers demonstrate traditional combed and stone pattern marbling and share samples of their work. Specializing in fine marbled papers, marbled silks and hand-bound books since 1987, Regina and Dan are masters of this fascinating craft.

Rooted in tradition, Chena River Marblers of Amherst Massachusetts use methods that were used in Renaissance Italy by bookbinders, but they never forget that the craft has its roots in the Middle and Far East.

Originating in China and Japan, marbling traveled the silk route into Persia and Turkey and on into Europe. Their marbling continues to encompass much of the past, though they do not hesitate to incorporate a 21st Century twist to pattern, color and technique.
