This historical technique is based on a stab binding common in Asia. Japan preferred the 4-hole stab binding. Over the centuries, 4 stitch patterns have surfaced as the most traditional.

Participants will complete at least 2 books using Kangxi, Noble, Hemp Leaf, Tortoise Shell. Whether these books hold poetry, pictures or personal thoughts; this historical bookbinding will showcase them beautifully.

No prior experience is necessary. All materials and tools will be provided. All supplies are vegan.

Suzan Lee is a local bookbinding instructor who learned her bookbinding skills at the Center for Book Arts in New York. She is affiliated with the local chapter of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild (CBBAG). She has been teaching bookbinding for over 10 years. Her interest in bookbinding started with her fascination with the wide range of materials and structures involved in binding books.
