Chinese bookbinding techniques have a history of over a thousand years. In Japan, Chinese stitch binding was widely adopted and gradually evolved into a common type of Japanese bookbinding technique – Japanese stab binding.
In this workshop, local paper artist Because Yeung will introduce participants to the transformation of stitch binding and traditional paper-cutting, as well as guiding participants to create their own note book with needles and threads. Decorated with a traditional and exquisite cover inspired by Chinese paper-cutting, complete with calendars and note sheet, participants will take home a stylish and practical schedule book.
