Bookbinding: Japanese Box

Saturday, Aug 27  10:00 AM-2:00 PM

Participants will make a beautiful box using a historical Japanese method. Beautiful decorative paper and book cloth are used to finish a box roughly 8″ x 3″ x 2″ with a bone clasp closure. Please bring plenty of discarded magazines and catalogues (about 100 sheets); not newspapers. We will use them to protect your box and work surfaces from glue stains. No handouts will be provided. Students are encouraged to take notes and photos. No prior bookbinding or box making experience is necessary. All materials and tools provided. Registration only. No drop-ins.
