My marbling patterns span from the traditional gelget and non pareil to more exploratory patterns. Each time I approach the marbling tray, I have carefully mixed colors to modern day color schemes. Next, I research patterns which would exemplify the newest hues to their best light. All along, the question of printing on silk fabric like scarves or paper comes to mind. Often times I will work on paper perfecting the pattern before printing on fabric. Neckties and bowties are fun to create. When a paper piece captures a stunning print, then it will become a frameable art work. I am available for custom work like groomsmen ensembles of bow ties, neck ties, and/or vests. Contact me for more information.
Pam Granger Gale is a National Board Certified Elementary art teacher, a profession she has loved for thirty one years. After retiring in 2016, Pam continued teaching and sharing her knowledge of papermaking and marbling, two ancient methods of creating useful items.
Pam found papermaking back in 1982 with a friend. She has grown through the papermaking process to create lamps, wedding invitations and hand bound journals. She studied under Peter Sowiski at Penland, and Frank Brannon when residing in Asheville.
Marbling came into her life in 1988 at a short one time workshop. She taught marbling classes on Hilton Head Island to many tourists and built a loyal following with many returning year after year. She has perfected her technique by attending classes with Ginny Moreland, Anne Murray, Judith Beers and Regina & Dan St. John.
She was the director of an art center on Hilton Head Island, SC and has opened Majik Studios with a cadre of professional teachers in the South Slope. That location closed in 2020 and now she is open in Pink Dog Creative in the River Arts District at 348 Depot St., Classes are available throughout the year. Come experience the relaxing process of marbling in a 2 hour workshop and leave with many paper creations and a fabric work of art.
Pam’s marbled clothing and accessories was selected for exhibition in 2019 in the national fiber show named “A Stitch to Wear”. Pam collaborated on this piece with Marcia Mills of MGMills Studio. It was juried by Renate Maile-Moskowitz of the Smithsonian. In 2022, Pam and Marcia have collaborated yet again on a flowing silk kimono which will be exhibited in the International Handweavers Guild of America conference, Convergence, July 15-21.
