Pam Granger Gale has been making paper since 1984. She graduated from Limestone College in 1978 with a BA in Art Education. A National Board Certified Teacher, Pam has been educating children for over 25 years through public education and private lessons. As a papermaker, Pam uses ancient Chinese techniques to make note cards, stationery, journals, paper lamps, and journals. It all started when Pam and a friend borrowed the equipment and stayed up in the wee hours making paper from everything they found. Recently she taught a week long papermaking course at John C. Campbell Folk School.
In 1988, Pam discovered a new creative love in marbling. An artistic skill, intertwined in the history of bookmaking, marbling has many patterns that can be taught with ease making it an art form which can quickly offer a sense of achievement. Pam teaches both the historical patterns of marbling as well as freestyle designs giving the creator more freedom with the paint.
She recently retired and now devotes all of her attention to perfecting her craftsmanship with these art forms.
