Singer + Japanese Binding Workshop
During this workshop, participants will be taught two binding techniques: the Singer stitch and Japanese stab binding. Making use of these techniques, workshop participants will create their very own handmade notebooks. Participants will have a choice of different card stocks and coloured threads to make their books truly one of a kind.
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.
Workshop participants will leave with their own handmade notebook 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. Read That Image will also have photobooks and artist publications on hand to show how these binding techniques are used within the world of art book and photobook design. Suitable for beginners, from artists to zinesters!
About Read That Image:
Read That Image is a collaborative group of photographers, editors, designers and visual artists that has emerged as a response to the current state of the Photobook industry; we recognize the difficulties that young and emerging artists encounter when trying to make photobooks and get their work published. It is these barriers that we want to do away with, and to replace the old redundant practices with a new more open affiliation between artists and publishers.
