There’s an elegance to the ancient art of Japanese bookbinding that nothing else touches. In this class you will discover how simple traditional stitch patterns are while making three distinct and beautiful softcover books of handmade papers, each enhanced with chiyogami embellishments. Using Asian handmade paper for text and wheatpaste for adhesive, we will discuss how Japanese binding styles respond to the light, thin paper generally used. And for the finishing touch, you’ll handcraft a traditional chitsu wrap to complement and encase your trio of books.
