In this workshop you will create a notebook using the Japanese stab binding technique. The basic Japanese version of stab binding is called Yotsume Toji, which roughly translates to “four holes”, the same as the Chinese version, while the Korean standard has five holes. Most books we use in our everyday lives are bound on the inside and therefore unseen on the finish book. In stab binding the sewing work is on the outside and adds a decorative element. The bonus to this type of binding is that you can bind single pages together so it is great for binding recipes, photos, prints, collections and drawings.
If you have anything specific that you would like to bind together, for example photos, prints, favourite recipes, poems or old paper, and you would like to bring these along please do, otherwise all materials will be provided.
This workshop is run by experienced book artist and teacher Kim Bevan, who provides workshops for all ages at Chatsworth and in her own studio in Sheffield. In her own practice she makes artist books which play around with 3D sculptural folding techniques and she creates artwork using paper cutting and printmaking.
The workshop includes tea and coffee and all materials, and will take place in our garden art studio, the Old Potting Shed. The Old Potting Shed is step free and accessible. If you have any questions about your own specific needs please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
