Workshop: Book Binding: Paper Marbling

November 15, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this hands-on workshop, lead by bookbinders Teresa Walker and Chelsea van der Meer, from the National Library Bindery Co. of Indianapolis, students will delve into the magical world of paper marbling. Hypnotic swirls and swoops, waves of wonder, collisions of color, dreamy dribbles: all worthy words for the experience that awaits in an afternoon of paper marbling! Students will learn the basics of the marbling process, materials, set up, color mixing and printing to produce their own set of twenty marbled papers in the is fun and colorful approach to a classic art form. All supplies and tools are included in the cost of the workshop. 

The National Library Bindery Company is a truly marvelous hidden gem right here in Indy. They are currently nestled in a modern office building on State Ave, but upon walking through the doors, its like stepping into the past. Since 1873, the bindery has faithfully preserved traditional bookmaking techniques developed during the turn of the century. Originally established to convey the written word to the early settlers and  pioneers of the Wild West, the bindery now specializes in producing high-end, deluxe edition books, archival quality preservation of publications, and restoration of antique books. The bindery has recently expanded to offering year-round bookmaking classes to the Indianapolis community.
