The Drum Leaf is an elegant, hard cover book, and an ideal structure for artists and designers. Because it is assembled by adhering folded sheets of paper, this book can be made directly from prints, drawings, or photographs.
It is easy to learn and does not require specialist tools. In class we will discuss alternate techniques and future projects. Participants in this workshop will bind a book using the Drum Leaf technique and leave with the skills to make them by themselves.
The class is suitable for all levels of experience, including beginners.
Tutor: Sarah Bryant
