Try your hand at binding your own soft cover book with mixed media artist Amanda Hu. Watoji, or Japanese bookbinding, is a simple, elegant method for creating unique soft and hardcover books. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to stitch together a personalized notebook, journal or scrapbook using this beautiful Japanese sewing technique. Participants of all skill levels will leave this workshop with a greater appreciation for traditional bookbinding as well as a charming memento of their experience. All materials are included.

We recommend anyone under high school age be accompanied by an adult due to the use of sharp tools in this workshop.

$40/$35 Japan Society members, seniors & students
