DB/SoB Joint Weekend Workshops
Make and Marble a Photograph Album
Tutor: Freya Scott
Marbled papers have long been a traditional bookbinding material, lending colour and pattern to covers and endpapers alike, and there is little more satisfying than using your own designs on your own books.
On this two day course you will learn to make both traditional and contemporary style marbled papers and then use them to bind a photograph album. The album will be made using folded 'guards' (extra material inserted into the album to allow for the thickness of photographs to be stuck in) and will have a cloth spine and your own marbled covers.Students will need to wear old clothes/shoes they don't mind getting paint on, and/or an apron to this workshop.
