Louise Brockman

Louise originally trained and worked as a Secondary School Science Teacher. After juggling full-time teaching with working for the family bookbinding business something had to give, so she left education and now works full-time with her husband Stuart. A long time admirer of marbled paper she took several courses which started an interest in this amazing and satisfying craft. Louise spent some time with Ann Muir, whose enthusiasm and great skills inspired her to take marbling up more seriously. Her papers are used by bookbinders for book coverings and endpapers.
Louise has transferred her teaching skills to teach adults to achieve successful results in the fascinating craft of paper marbling.
