Bookbinding: Make a Japanese Stab Bound Sketchbook!

Artist Instructor: Natalie Draz


Learn to use the natural beauty of Japanese paper to make your own Japanese Stab Bound sketchbook. Using Japanese papers for the interior pages and chiyogami screenprinted by master artisans in Japan, we will make two beautifully bound books, each with a distinctive decorative stitch pattern on the cover.

Natalie Draz is an artist documenting her neighbourhoods with bold, eye-popping illustrations. Drawn to clean inked lines, architectural details and the gorgeous palette of ink and watercolour, her illustrations transform from drawings into three dimensional papercuts that pop off the page!

Intermingling illustration, watercolour, printmaking and pop up artist books, Natalie creates art that unfolds, pops up, fans open and reveals her metropolitan stories.
