Japanese Stab Binding Workshop



In this wonderful afternoon of bookbinding, you will be introduced to the art of Japanese stab binding. This is a versatile technique that works perfectly for single pages and is therefore great for artists books, albums and journals.

During the class, you will learn how to prepare hard covers using gorgeous decorative paper and book cloth, before stitching a classic Japanese pattern from a selection of coloured thread.

At the end of the afternoon, you’ll leave with a beautiful handmade book and the skills to make more!

The workshop is suitable for both beginners and also people with a little prior knowledge of book binding.

All materials and use of tools are included, together with lots of tea, coffee and homemade cake.

The workshop will be taught by multi-award winning professional bookbinder and experienced teacher, Mylyn McColl.

“Relaxed atmosphere, friendly hosts, excellent tutor and I get to go home with something handmade. Perfect!”

“Fab workshop with a great teacher. Thank you!”

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
