STITCHING SESSIONS is a series of three hour bookbinding workshops taking place throughout the year in the Read That Image studio. These workshops introduce participants to the craft of bookbinding, from the simplest of Singer stitches to the more complex French Link stitch!

Workshop participants will learn about the different papers, materials and tools needed to create their own hand-bound books. Members of the RTI team will guide participants step-by-step through various bookbinding techniques in these hands on DIY workshops.

Each Stitching Session workshop follows the same format. The morning session runs from 11am - 2pm and introduces participants to the Japanese stab bind and Singer stitch binding methods. The afternoon session runs from 3pm - 6pm and introduces participants to the French Link stitch..

Workshop participants will leave with their own handmade notebooks and the knowledge and understanding of how to apply these binding techniques to their own book projects. The techniques taught can be used to create journals and notebooks, artist books and zines, and photobook dummies and maquettes.

Suitable for beginners, from artists to zinesters! All materials are included.
