Stitching Sessions is a series of bookbinding workshops lead by members of photobook design collective, Read That Image. During these workshops participants will be introduced to the craft of bookbinding and 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 including the Singer-stitch and Japanese stab-bind. Workshop participants will leave with their own unique handmade notebooks 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 all sorts of books from journals and notebooks to artist books and zines. Suitable for beginners, from artists to zinesters! All materials included.
These RVAF Professional Development workshops are funded through Creative Ireland.
