In this fun class you will learn how to create beautiful marble patterns on paper. In paper marbling, paint is suspended onto the surface of specially prepared thickened water and combed or swirled into intricate patterns, then transferred onto sheets of paper. These lusciously patterned sheets were traditionally used in bookbinding, but you can also use your finished papers in scrapbooks, collages, greeting cards, or even just framed for the wall!

All materials are provided, and you will create between five and eight sheets (12×19″) of marbled paper, plus some smaller practice sheets.

In this variant form of Longstitch binding, a combination of longstitch and link stitch, folded sections of pages are sewn together by linking the sections through holes punched through a wraparound cover sheet to create a pattern of exposed sewing along the spine. For this sample book we will use a heavy paper cover sheet, but this binding style is perfect for covers made of heavy, flexible materials such as leather, vinyl, vellum, or some fabrics. We will cover some basic decorative variations in spine designs, incorporating long stitches and link stitches with the option to add some weaving to the spine as a decorative flourish.

All materials are provided. No previous bookbinding experience is necessary, and you do not need to have taken Longstitch 1 to take this class.
