In this introductory bookbinding workshop, you will learn how to make your own A5 stab-bound
book, a binding method developed in 17 th century Japan that is still used throughout the world to
create notebooks and albums. All materials will be provided to create your own A5 book, and you
will be able to customise your cover from a range of decorative papers and coloured threads. The
workshop will be hosted by artist and bookbinder Elize de Beer, owner of Bookward Bound Bindery,
which uses traditional bookbinding techniques to create contemporary books and artist books.
