Paper Marbling + Bookbinding
Taught by Kelly Laughlin
Kelly Laughlin is a multidisciplinary artist and educator who focuses on the playful, meditative acts of making. She believes every person is capable of living a creative life. Kelly is the founder of Odette Press, a paper marbling and bookbinding studio focused on specialty papers, books, and stationery, created with the intention to support self discovery and healing through the act of writing.
In this workshop, you'll explore two processes: paper marbling and bookbinding.
Spend the morning learning suminagashi techniques and creating hand-marbled papers. After a lunch break, we'll use the marbled papers to create handbound books with Japanese stab-binding techniques.
You'll leave with hand-marbled papers and an assortment of handbound books. All materials are provided, and lunch will be on your own. Feel free to bring food from home or explore the neighborhood!
