Japanese Book Binding Workshop

  • April 6, 2019 • 2 PM – 4 PM
  • Julian Edison Department of Special Collections

Come view amazing bindings from the University Libraries’ rare book collections that highlight historic Japanese binding structures. Attendees will learn three traditional Japanese stab-binding sewing patterns (four-eye, tortoiseshell and hemp leaf). They will then be able to choose their favorite sewing pattern of the workshop to create their very own fukuro-toji (pouch binding). Beginners are welcome and all materials will be provided. Click here to sign up for this free workshop.
