7074Re: marbling literature
- May 13, 2013Hello,
I would love to see someone develop an online course in marbling. I live in a very small town, far from any major centres where an in-person course might be offered. I'm sure there are lots of others out there like me.
I've cobbled together lots of free online resources and watched a number of YouTube videos on the subject, but a soundly developed online course that explores marbling start to finish (or as close to finish as possible), would be an exceptional resource for many.

I honestly don't know all that is involved, but I wish we could support and urge both of these wonderful marblers to make their work available in an electronic format. I generally share a copy of Galen's book at each Marbling Workshop I teach and I believe many more could be sold if they were readily available online. Some of Diane's books are still available but her 'bible' of marbling is out of print. Just my thoughts on the topic . . . And yes, there are indeed wonderful resources available on YouTube and in various blogs and places like the Book Arts list serve site.
