A Sensory Artist Book- Scrapbooking
Four individual workshops with Leïla Tayebaly tutoring a group in the making of unique personal artistic books or albums collecting secrets and souvenirs.
Create a personal project, under the supervision of a creative mind, explore new spaces with what you already know, collect pieces of poetry in your day to day life and assemble the pieces of a gigantic puzzle into a precious artistic book.
Sophie Benini says that a book is like a house and has a mysterious and intriguing front door, and entering the first page, is like penetrating a new territory.
Illustrators like Frédéric Clément, gave new functions to our books, delivering messages to all our senses.
Each book or album represents a collection of memories, and projections, ideas, and explorations.
To celebrate someone you love, a major event in your life, or simply those little moments of happiness, come and create a unique piece of art through visual and sensory stories.
Wrap it, gift, it, collect it, hide it, find it, this book should please a few generations of passionate explorers.
