Workshop // Paper Marbling in the Bindery

April 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join Charleston Library Society’s Director of Conservation James Davis and Conservation Intern Sam Barnheart for an introduction to the ancient art of decorative paper marbling: a method of aqueous surface design using ink and paint colors, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone. During this creative session, you will explore the fascinating craft that transforms prepared papers with fluid patterns and vibrant colors. The workshop will introduce the history of paper marbling which dates back to the 10th century, and provide insights into materials, tools, and techniques to create your own unique papers. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or a beginner, this class offers something for everyone who wishes to experiment with creative paper techniques using various color combinations and designs. Join us to discover the joy of creating your unique marbled papers!

Tickets are $150 for CLS members and $175 for General Admission.
