Regina & Dan St. John

Regina and Daniel St. John established Chena River Marblers, a marbling and bookbinding business in 1985. They specialize in making beautiful marbled papers, marbled silks and hand bound books for the gift market. Chena River papers are used nationwide by fine bookbinders, are collected by lovers of fine marbled papers, are honored to be part of several major library collections and have been exhibited at the 2002 and 2016 International Marblers Gatherings. Now, with 34 years of experience and with their great love of marbling, The St Johns have committed themselves to teaching marbling at the very highest levels. Before 1985, the St. Johns were public school teachers. Regina worked with elementary age students and Dan St.John taught Chemistry and Physics.
Along with a love of history, the St. Johns bring their well-crafted teaching skills as well as Dan St.John’s excellent understanding of chemistry and physics to all their marbling workshops.
There are no schools for marblers and those who wish to learn, struggle. The St. Johns have a vast experience both with acrylic paints and classical watercolor marbling and are able to offer the highest level of instruction to both those new to marbling as well as to those who come with significant experience.
