In this weekend workshop explore using three traditional Japanese methods to design and construct a hand-stitched, dip-dyed notebook. Designer/Maker, Erica Vaskevicius will introduce you to orizome, the technique of intricately folding and dyeing paper as well as moku hanga, to create a woodblock printed image. Afterwards, combine your dyed paper, printed image and washi (Japanese paper) into a notebook by learning how to bind the pages using the Japanese stab binding technique of yotsume toji. At the end of the two days you will leave with a beautifully bound notebook demonstrating your skills.
*No experience necessary. Washi, linen fabric and thread will be provided. Participants may also bring a small selection of specialty papers, scraps of fabric, or embroidery thread they would like to use.
