Stoke Newington

What happens in this class?

In this workshop participants will make three handmade books using different Japanese sewing techniques: the 4-hole binding, the noble binding and the tortoise-shell binding. We will also be making a traditional bookcloth covered wraparound case that folds up to enclose the books.

Japanese stab binding is a great method of binding together single pages with your artwork, photography or writing or making beautiful sketchbooks and notebooks. All materials will be provided and no previous experience is required.
