About this Workshop:

Drum leaf binding is a glued structure which makes it the perfect book type for printmakers, photographers or anyone interested in presenting visual narratives without sewing thread to interrupt the flow of imagery on the page. In this class you will learn a simple, yet elegant way, to glue pages together with a hard cover and spine wrapped in a paper dust jacket.

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary

Registration closes May 8, 2024 and all materials are provided.

  • Personal apron (we’ll have extras) or wear clothes that can get messy with glue, etc.
  • Notepad/Sketchbook and pencil take any notes


Anne Barnes is an artist and graphic designer living in Washington, DC. She graduated in June 2020 with an MFA in Visual Arts and worked for many years as a book and cover designer in publishing. Her mixed media work—which includes the use of books as medium and the production of artist’s books—combines a high-keyed color palette, expressive gesture, and symbolic mark-making. The result is the abstracted visualizations of her memories, emotions, and varied perspectives that merge to become metaphors for exploration into themes of human nature, popular culture, feminism, and motherhood.
