Welcome to Spring Leaf Press!

Upcoming workshops and events:

Clamshell Box Making
Date: October/November TBA 2014, Saturday and Sunday
Time: 10:00am-2:30pm, we will take a break for lunch*
Location: Spring Leaf Press Studio, BLOOMINGTON, IN
Fee: $150.00

The clamshell box is the most versatile protective enclosure for artwork, books and objects. In this two day workshop, we will construct a sturdy clamshell box using handmade paper and bookcloth that not only protects the objects inside but is a great way to present professional work. During the class, we will discuss modifying the traditional clamshell in order to accommodate unusual shapes, create divided trays, and even make secret compartments. Participants will also learn how to make their own book cloth which can be used in the workshop or saved for future projects. The clamshell box will be made to house materials that are 8 x 10 inches. If you’re interested in making your clamshell box to hold materials of a different size, please say so at the time of registration.

Reserve your spot by emailing me here. Workshop fees can be paid by cash, check or credit card the day of the workshop. Upon registration, participants will be sent a list of things they should bring to the workshop.
