Japanese stab binding, also known as Fukuro Toji (bound-pocket books), is an artist’s bookmaking technique that employs a simple, classic sewing process to make a soft cover album. Participants in this class will learn paper folding, tearing, and sewing techniques using traditional bookbinders tools such as a bone folder and awl. Each participant will make at least 2 sewn albums, showcasing different stitching patterns. Participants are invited to use their own decorative paper (at least 6″x 12″) to personalize their covers, or use what Perennial provides!
This is a virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom. Participants will be emailed a link to participate prior to class. You will be able to pickup a kit of materials containing paper, beeswax, a needle, and floss on Thursday, April 15 11am-5pm, or can email email@example.com to arrange another time.
