Introduction to Japanese Bookbinding

A workshop from EMF 2018 by Ben Dornan

On Sunday September 2, 2018 at in Workshop 3

Because who doesn't love stationery and making things. It's super easy to get started with making books at home, and there's loads to explore once you get going. Here, we're going to make a simple book using a Japanese 3 hole binding structure. You should come away from the workshop with a book, some basic theory and technique, and some pointers on next projects to think about.

Please note: This workshop was delivered at EMF 2016, so if you came last time around you won't find anything new here. I'm also running a Bookbinding and Boxmaking Techniques for Hackers session over the weekend which will cross over heavily with this - probably come to one or the other.
