Drum Leaf/Stiff Leaf Bookbinding


Saturday, May 11, 12-5pm
Registration Deadline: May 8

Teens and adults

The drum leaf/stiff leaf binding, developed by Tim Ely, is a flexible adhesive book structure that is great for artists and printmakers--it opens flat, accommodates a wide variety of papers, and can be used for applications from photo books to board books to pop-ups. During the workshop, we will create several drum leaf/stiff leaf models and discuss variations for covers and interiors.
