Learn the brilliant and ancient art of Japanese bookbinding in a fun, hands-on and inspirational class, which will give you the perfect opportunity to find that hobby you have been looking for!
Back when printing had recently been invented and the printed word was a thing of great importance and rarity, bookbinding was first used as a means of protecting parchment manuscripts. Such was the importance of these books, that they were stored in chests as opposed to bookshelves.
This class will guide you step by step through all the processes of Japanese bookbinding, and you will leave with your very own hand-bound book.
The techniques covered in this class include basic bookbinding methods as well as Japanese stab binding, and a classic stitch. All materials will be provided for you so you won’t have to come with anything (except a desire to learn a new hobby!).
These Japanese notebooks are beautiful in appearance and make wonderful gifts for family and friends. They can be used for photo books, journals, travel diaries and many more!
Only 8 spaces available for this class- make sure you are one of those 8 people!
