In this class, students will learn how to create their own Japanese stab bound book with a hinged hardcover. In most binding styles, sheets of paper must first be folded before sewn together into a book format. The advantage of a stab binding is that loose sheets of paper can be directly piled together in one ‘block’ then sewn together. Typically, Japanese stab bound books have soft covers, but in this workshop, students will learn to create a hinge in their hard covers allowing the book to open easily while maintaining the integrity of the book’s contents. All materials provided, but students are free to bring decorative papers for their own projects as well. Beginners welcome.
