Japanese Stab Bound Book workshop

The branch enjoyed a fantastic approach with textile artist Anne Griffiths last Saturday at Little Somerford Village Hall, learning techniques and methods to create and make Japanese stab bound books.

Anne is a fantastic and generous tutor and brought along some of her handmade books, showing kettle stitch and piano spine techniques for binding.  She also included some fan fold and envelope books.


Anne showed us many techniques to create our own  handmade books.  We all used patterned textile papers in various forms and embellishments to enhance our small bound books.

The final collection.
