She learned marbling with Regina St. John of Chena River Marblers. In this virtual lecture she will discuss marbling techniques on leather, and as an edge treatment as well as instructions on how binders can bring this practice into their space. Come with your questions. Deborah will share her experience and answer questions about techniques and tools.
