Bookbinding Experience

The art of bookbinding has changed over the centuries; long gone are the days of writing on parchment rolls in the West. The methods applied to bind books have also differed depending on the region or country. This important art has been preserved beautifully in Japan and the techniques used to bind ancient tomes are still practised in the modern day. In this activity you will have the opportunity to try learning the traditional techniques of bookbinding. Delicate Japanese washi paper and colourful strings come together into a beautiful piece of art which will be a great memento of your time in Japan.
