Japanese Stab Stitch Notebooks

City wide

disabled access

Japanese binding, also known as stab-stitch, was the standard form for printed binding in Japan in the late 16th century. Unlike other forms of bookmaking, each page is cut to double length, folded in half and assembled pages are sewn together, the stitches passing through the blank margins next to the loose edges so then sewn edges form the spine and folds form the edges of pages. In this workshop, we will look at traditional stab-stitch techniques, as well as more modern intepretations of the craft, to make a series of notebooks. No experience necessary, all materials provided (but if you have some great paper you'd like to use, feel free to bring it with you!) The session will run 10-4.30pm. A refund is availabe up to a week before the workshop if you need to cancel, the last date is the 5th November.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
