In this two-day workshop, students will create a set of binding models using various methods of East Asian side stitch binding. Students will learn how to prepare text blocks by binding folded sheets together with paper cords to create an inner binding. Students will then create binding models using different traditional sewing methods. The binding models will be housed in a wraparound case, which students will also construct in the workshop. Students will learn about the tools and materials required for traditional East Asian binding and leave with 5 completed book models to reference for future work. All basic materials will be provided, but students will have the option of purchasing additional hanji (Korean paper) for future projects.
