Book Binding Workshop in Special Collections

Due to popular demand, we have added a second workshop during the morning of April 6! Sign up for the morning workshop below.

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.
