Introduction to Japanese Bookbinding
This workshop is an introduction to making unique and beautiful handmade books in the Japanese style! We will focus on four commonly seen stab bindings/sewn bindings. For the purpose of this workshop, we will use readily available media. You will go away with four books, hopefully all completed.
You will be provided with written instructions and diagrams regarding the process of putting your books together.

You may wish to bring a note book and pencil for taking your own notes although full instructions will be provided. We will send you a list (short and inexpensive) of what you need to bring at least two weeks prior to the workshop date.
