Follow the expertise of artist Ian Halawi and make your own sketchbook using traditional bookbinding techniques.
Ian will teach you the process of the binding technique Koki Toji, a technique that originated in China and is used in Japan and Korea. Koki Toji translates to Noble Binding – it’s called this because it was the binding used for documents in the Chinese imperial court!
In this workshop you’ll select your thread colour and a book cover from a selection of designs based on traditional Japanese patterns hand printed by Ian.
After being led through the binding process, you will finish your book by rounding off the corners – completing your own customised sketch book filled with different types of paper.
Have fun learning about pattern and binding technique names as you’re guided through the process of making a sketchbook using this traditional technique.
Suitable for ages 16+.
This workshop is £5.
There are 10 places available each session.
The workshops will last approx 1 hour 45 mins.
