A Virtual Workshop!


In this workshop students will learn how to make a book using the deceptively simple drum leaf binding. This binding is made entirely using adhesives, allowing full spread images without sewing through the pages. This workshop would be perfect for printmakers or paper artists who wish to turn existing works on heavy duty paper into a finished book.


Level: Intermediate—some previous bookmaking experience is helpful but not necessary.


Note: Registration closes October 15, 2020 to allow time for students to purchase their materials. With your registration you'll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.


PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
