In this workshop, students will create a four-hole Japanese stab binding. This is the perfect project for someone looking to try a scrapbook, a family memento book, or a personal sketchbook.  In stab binding you will learn the importance of working with the direction of the grain of your paper which is important for bookbinding. One thing great about working with stab-bound books, you can use scraps of papers of different weights, textures, and colors as long as they are cut to the same size to line up to create the four-stab stitching technique. In this workshop you will also learn a simple dying technique for the cover of your book. Once you’ve learned this stab binding technique, you can learn more advanced techniques.
