The Leaf Press is the studio name of surface pattern designer and papercut artist Suzy Dobson. I create colourful designs which I sell on stationery, wedding invitations and pictures. The Leaf Press was originally a bookbinding studio but has evolved over the years so that papercut style designs are my speciality. I have been teaching adults since 2009 and am very excited to have started offering workshops in my own studio in 2023. Students have described it as a 'bright, calming space' and with a maximum of 4 students you can be sure of a friendly and relaxed learning experience where you can work at your own pace but receive help when you need it. I look forward to welcoming you to a workshop and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
