Thursday 10:00 - 12:00pm
In this workshop instructor Carol Marie Vossler, will teach you the ancient technique of the Japanese stab-stich book binding method. Students will first warm up with a three- signature soft covered book using a pamphlet stitch, and then learn the steps needed to make a soft covered book using a Japanese stab stitch binding. Participants will learn how to plan, punch, fold and bind their signatures, creating two of their very own handmade books.
Stab-stitch bookbinding, originated in China during the Edo period in 1603, was the most common style of stab-stitch binding. The binding method was adapted in both Korea and Japan. Chinese stab binding traditionally had four holes, Korean stab binding had five, and Japanese stab binding used different amounts of holes for different types of books.
