Description

bookbinding workshop

Japanese stab-bound books
Sunday 30 April 2017

Learn a variety of Japanese stab bindings, by making FOUR different notebooks using the mostly widely recognised Oriental bindings: traditional 4-hole; Noble; Tortoiseshell; and Hemp-leaf stitching patterns.

This is a great workshop for beginner bookbinders, and is also exciting for those who already have experience with western bookbinding because it offers a new set of decorative opportunities. Japanese stab bindings are also an easy and practical way to bind loose sheets, which is difficult in western book structures.

All materials are provided in the workshop, and you can choose from an assortment of different papers/card, a colourful range of waxed-linen thread, and also a variety of upcycled leathers and Japanese Chiyogami papers to make a set of unique and personalised books.

All tools and materials are provided as part of the workshop, but you are welcome to bring your own items from home (i.e. A3 cutting mat, a metal ruler, craft/Stanley knife, pencil, awl, bonefolder, and any sheets of fancy/coloured/found papers if you want to use these in your books)

Comprehensive instructions and templates are also included, to enable you to continue making more books at home.
