Japanese Manuscript Bookbinding (Sat, Jul 14 2018, 12-3pm)

Instructor: Suzan Lee
Location(s): Vancouver
Topic(s): Mixed/Other Media
July 14, 2018

You will learn to bind books using a traditional Japanese technique that is still used today. Also known as "stab binding", this method is used by Japanese scholars to bind their writings and notes in a cover made of soft materials. Under Suzan Lee's direction, you will blind "pouch" sheets, but this technique can also be used to bind loose sheets. If you have screenplays, manuscripts or drawings loose and messy in a drawer, Japanese stab binding can turn them into decorative and presentable books. All tools and materials provided.
