In this workshop by Éilís Murphy from Folded Leaf, participants will be introduced to 4- & 5-hole Japanese book bindings. Participants will gain knowledge of how to use basic bookbinding tools and the principles of bookbinding including grain direction, gluing, and folding tips. During the day, variations such as Hemp Leaf and Tortoiseshell stitches will also be covered.
The objective of this course is to explore the potential of basic book structures to create unexpected books. No experience is needed! Participants are encouraged to bring along any ideas or decorative paper that they would like to incorporate into their books.
