      Steve Pittelkow will travel to the Cheltenham Center for the Arts as a visiting artist from Minnesota. As a bookbinder, Steve Pittelkow's interest in marbled designs stems from a longtime desire to personalize his own books with distinctive papers and cloth. Steve especially enjoys teaching the craft and revealing the secrets for successful marbling. He is one of the best marbling instructors in the country and we are thrilled to have him come to teach.

      Over the years, Steve has experimented with a wide variety of paints and papers in his quest for materials that allow students a rich and successful marbling experience. Students will spend the first day of class creating marbled papers. Steve will teach four or five traditional marbled patters, explain color and pigment placement - giving individual attention to each student.

      The second day of class will be spent using the papers created to construct a Chinese Lantern Box. The
 Chinese 
lantern 
box 
is 
a 
simple 
hexagon 
box
 on 
the 
inside 
and 
a 
beautiful, 
yet 
sturdy 
lantern
 shape
 on 
the 
outside. 
Easy 
to
 construct 
and
 cover, 
this
 box
 will 
become 
a
favorite.
 All
 materials
 will 
be 
supplied
 by
 the 
instructor. Bring your lunch and your creativity!

      Registration for the workshop will close on January 7th. For more information go to www.cheltenhamarts.org or contact Lisa Heller at education@....

      Hope to see you in January!
