The Read That Image team is pleased to announce STITCHING SESSIONS, a new series of weekly bookbinding workshops taking place during the month of October in the RTI studio. These workshop will introduce participants to the craft of bookbinding, from the simplest of singer stitches to the more complex coptic.
Workshop participants will learn about the different papers, materials and tools needed to create their own hand-bound books. Members of the RTI team will guide participants through various bookbinding techniques step-by-step in these hands-on DIY workshops. Each Sunday two workshops will take place. The morning session will focus on Singer stitch and Japanese stab binding, and the afternoon session will concentrate on Coptic stitch binding.
At the end of each 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. Suitable for beginners, from artists to zinesters, and everyone in between.
No. of Participants: Max 8 people per workshop
