Japanese binding is both a decorative and functional form of bookbinding and is an easy way to bind together single sheets of paper.  It involves a technique called ‘stab stitching’ which used thread or sometimes ribbons to create a decorative effect on the outside cover.  Teaching and learning will be based on a variety of methods and these will include demonstrations of techniques and personal guidance.

Please note a kit will be provided on the day for an additional cost of £6.00, payable to the tutor.

Please bring a packed lunch, use the library cafe on site (hot and cold meals and drinks), or alternatively there are excellent cafes nearby.
