What you will do
If you are looking for an interesting and decorative method of binding, then a Japanese style book is for you! This binding uses a stack of single sheets as a starting point, instead of the folding and stitching method found in the traditional book.
In this class you will use a range of different bookbinding materials to make two A5 Japanese bindings. This binding style lends itself to decoration, which we will do with pretty papers and interesting stitch patterns! This is a versatile binding method which can be modified to make notebooks, scrap books, and photo albums. You need no prior bookbinding experience for this course.
