Drumleaf for Artists, Photographers, and Makers
October 1, 2017
October 1, Sunday, 10 am-4 pm
Drumleaf is a simple glued book structure that is ideal for anyone looking to make books with their own work as the content. The structure lays flat, eliminates the need to print on the front and back of sheets, and can be created using almost any kind of paper! In this one day workshop, students will learn the basics of the Drumleaf structure with hard covers. Discussion will focus on best practices, problem solving, and variations of the structure.
Beth Sheehan is a printmaker, paper maker, and book artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She is currently the bindery manager at Small Editions in Brooklyn.
