Japanese Stab Bookbinding

  • Blackbird Letterpress 1607 South Main St Baton Rouge LA

In this course you’ll learn the ancient, traditional technique of Japanese-stab bookbinding. We'll begin with a simple 4-hole stitch, and work our way up to a more complicated, intermediate-level stitching pattern. You’ll leave with three handmade blank books and the basic knowledge to create your own custom patterns at home. Materials will be provided, but feel free to bring additional supplies (like decorative papers or photographs) to personalize your project!

This class is $60 which includes all materials and is lead by Rebecca, a printer and designer at Blackbird.
