Japanese Puncture Book Workshop – Fruitlands Museum, Harvard, MA – August 13, 2016

Hajosy Arts is happy to announce another book arts workshop at the Fruitlands Museum for Summer 2016.



Workshop :  Japanese Puncture Books with Cristina Hajosy

Saturday, August 13, 2016  10am to 3pm

This all-day workshop will explore a beloved book structure: the Japanese puncture (or “stab”) binding. This technique is especially useful as it joins individual sheets into a text block. The sheets can be edited and sequenced by the artist, then bound, resequenced, and then bound again and again! Perfect for visual journals, print collections, photo albums, signature books, and upscale scrapbooking, you will find the Japanese puncture book has endless uses.

Hand stitching is a technique for sewing the sections, or “signatures,” of a book together. This workshop will cover six different decorative stitch patterns on both soft and hard covers. Unique decorative papers, book cloths, ribbons, and embellishments will be used in book components, enabling you to add your own personal touches to your finished pieces. All supplies will be provided.  No experience necessary.
