Japanese Bookbinding Workshop: Soft and Hardcover

Learn the skills to create your own DIY books



2.5 hours Class size 8 to 10     label $139

Are you looking for a fun and creative hands-on activity to help you unwind after a long day at work? Why not try out Guild of Objects' bookbinding course in Melbourne and learn this fascinating Japanese craft!

In this workshop, you will be guided through the step by step process of creating your own bindings by expert craftswoman Kelly Gilchrist. You’ll learn the basics of both softcover and hardcover Japanese stitch binding techniques and create your own books to take home.

The workshop begins by creating the hardcovers which will be covered in bookbinders buckram. Once these are completed, you will be able to prepare your pages and stitch your soft cover binding before completing your hardcover book - both created using a simple Noble Binding (Koki Toji).

You'll finish up with two books bound by you ready to take home and put to use! If you're looking for fun things to do in Melbourne this weekend this workshop is a great way to get in touch with your creative side.

The Guild of Objects is a Guild for all makers, artists and creatives; whether you are an everyday creative, an experienced creative, an “I need a career shift” creative, someone pursuing their creative journey as a side hustle, or wanting to explore your innate creativity for the first time.

Our mission is to connect you; the creative, with the skills that you need to progress your creativity as well as your creative practice.

In pursuit of our support for all creatives, the Guild runs an extensive number of workshops for all those seeking to connect with their own innate creativity. All our workshops are artist lead and small, we take a maximum of 10 enrolments to give participants the opportunity to let their creative juices flow whilst connecting with some newfound friends around our Guild table!

Our hope is that when you leave our home; that whatever you purchased will be not just your new favourite thing but it will still be your favourite in 10 years’ time; the experience you had and what you created in the workshop at the Guild will leave you talking about how nourished and inspired you feel with your friends, and what you learned in your coaching session empowers you and your business, so much so that even your competitors are talking about your businesses success!
