For the fifth episode of our podcast we invited a marbler from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Katy Ebru talks with us about her path to becoming a marbler and shows several marbling patterns right during the recording!
I have recorded five episodes of iBookBinding podcast to date, and four of them are already available for watching and listening on different platforms (find links below). I like the experience quite a lot and hope this podcast will last for quite a long time!
Our podcast's guest is Rita Udina, a book and paper conservator from Barcelona, Spain. Rita shows her fantastic studio, we talk about her projects, and answer questions that were sent by our followers!
The second part of this episode is mostly dedicated to the Q&A. However, we dedicate some time to discussing leisure, work-life balance, and keeping up-to-date with current restoration and conservation trends.
