During this workshop, participants will be taught two binding techniques: the Singer stitch and Japanese stab binding. Making use of these techniques, workshop participants will create their very own handmade notebooks. Participants will have a choice of different card stocks and coloured threads to make their books truly one of a kind.
Workshop participants will leave with their own handmade notebook and the knowledge and understanding of how to apply these binding techniques to their own book projects. The techniques taught can be used to create journals and notebooks, artist books and zines, and photobook dummies and maquettes. Read That Image will also have photobooks and artist publications on hand to show how these binding techniques are used within the world of art book and photobook design. Suitable for beginners, from artists to zinesters!
