Japanese Stab Binding

Max students: 6
Saturday, June 5, 10am-1pm
$60 - all materials included
Basic Bookbinding Techniques
In this workshop we will learn basic bookbinding techniques, including cutting and gluing papers and book cloth, punching pages and covers for binding. We will learn techniques for neat gluing, which is always a challenge, and the basics of wrapping the board to make the cover.
Japanese Stab Binding Basics
The simple square stitch of Japanese Stab Binding allows one to bind single sheets into a book. We will collect our covers and blank pages into a 5.5” x 8.5” book.
There are many more complex stitch patterns if one finds this technique inspiring.
Tools and Materials
All materials are included in tuition. Necessary tools will be available and include pencil and metal ruler, x-acto knife, heavy duty punch, PVA glue, bone folder, bookcloth, decorated and plain papers, and ribbon.
