Japanese Book Binding

  • Box Hill Community Arts Centre 470 Station Street Box Hill, VIC, 3128 Australia (map)

Join us for Japanese bookbinding using beautiful handmade papers to decorate covers of books. In this workshop Paperazzi Design studios resident paper artist Michelle Lackenby, will guide you through various Japanese binding stitch techniques and patterns and show you how to create your very own books to take home.

The techniques covered include simple Japanese stitch, Japanese stab binding, hemp stitch and tortoise shell binding. Each technique builds on the last and you will create your own set of soft cover books to take home.

These Japanese journals make excellent gifts and can be used for any purpose. Think photo books, writing journals, travel diaries – the possibilities are endless! No experience necessary. All notes and materials included.
