Event Description

Bookbinding Workshop with Prankster Press: Japanese Stab Binding

Book Suey and Lyz Luidens of @pranksterpress invite you to explore the physical process of making books... in a bookstore! ⁠

⁠In this workshop, Lyz will present the Japanese stab binding technique - a strong and simple binding that is a step up in durability from the Pamphlet stitch. Participants will learn a new stitching technique and a new method for gluing cover pieces together. In this workshop we'll be using bookbinding needles and waxed thread, bookboard, bookcloth and decorative papers, PVA glue, bone folders, and awls.⁠

Lyz will have on hand their collection of maps as a decorative paper option, but participants are also totally welcome to bring their own artwork or decorative paper to put on the covers or interior of their books as well. ⁠

$60 fee includes all materials for this 3-hour workshop

⁠PRANKSTER PRESS WILL OFFER MORE SATURDAY BOOKBINDING WORKSHOPS IN FEBRUARY+ MARCH! They will be posted here, on Book Suey's Facebook and Eventbrite. ⁠
