Japanese Stabbound Boxes with Helen Perry at Cambridge Art Makers

Japanese Stabbound box by Helen Perry


During this class you will learn to make a box with a stitched lid, following a traditional Japanese Stab bound pattern. You will have the opportunity to learn how to put a magnetic fastening on your box too.

You will have a choice of beautiful Japanese papers and buckram – the sturdy material used to cover books and boxes. You will cover the inside of your box with the paper and the outside in a co-ordinating buckram. You may decide to have the lid and plinth in one colour and the sides in another.

You will learn (through demonstration and practice) the all-important skills of cutting and covering. Although we will work to the same template there will be the opportunity to personalise your box with the covering and lining materials and your choice of thread.

Participants will leave with one completed box along with instructions and skills to reproduce another at home.

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