Unbound Creativity with Rebecca Chamlee

Not every artist can pinpoint the experience that inspired their life’s work.

The fact that we were making something real, just like that—it was transformative for me.” That resonance was amplified when Rebecca paired her newfound passion with book arts.

Continuing Education Class Sparks New Venture For Designer Paige Cleveland

Los Angeles designer Paige Cleveland is revisiting another DIY craft tradition: hand-painted marbling.

A sheet of paper or a textile swath is then gently and quickly laid on top of the bath for the design to transfer.
