Together we will learn the basic skills of Japanese book binding by learning the side stitch. “Japanese Side stitch is a simple non-adhesive binding that is an excellent intro to bookbinding. Also known as Stab Binding, this traditional binding was practiced in China, Japan, and Korea” -Wikipedia

Materials will be provided to create your own decorative paper to wrap over bookboard to create the front and back covers. Then we will create your interior signatures (pages within the book) then we will use a jig to punch holes in the paper signatures and covers, putting together the book using bookbinding thread with the Japanese side stitch technique.  And VOILA, you have your own handmade book journal!
