Japanese Bookbinding



On this course you will make two traditional Japanese books, one with a decorative Japanese single-sheet binding and one more unusual but also traditional Japanese style of multi-section book with a slightly complex, beautiful sewing technique which allows the book to lie completely flat when opened..

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

In the first session you will learn how to do a single sheet Japanese binding sewn in a decorative style. In the second and third session we will make a Japanese multisection book, cutting paper to the right size, folding the sheets to make up the signatures, preparing book covers and sewing the signatures. There will be demonstrations, practical work and one-to-one tuition.
