Japanese Softcover Bookbinding Class

Learn Japanese stitch binding and make four lovely books in Melbourne



2.5 hours Class size 6 to 15     label $139 ($149 per guest when you book for 6+ guests, $139 for 6+ guests)

Bookbinding classes are a brilliant option if you're looking for unique and creative things to do in Melbourne. Learning the basics of Japanese stitch binding, you'll make four beautifully-bound softcover books to take home with you.

Taught by experienced teacher, Kelly Gilchrist, you'll learn four different styles of stitching:

  • Yotsume Toji - four-hole binding
  • Koki Toji - noble binding
  • Asa-No-Ha Toji - hemp leaf binding
  • Kikko Toji - tortoiseshell binding

Starting off with the most simple type of stitch, Yotsume Toji - four-hole binding, you'll then progress to the other slightly more advanced stitching methods, creating four of your own books to take home to use and treasure.

Bookbinding is a mindful and focused craft, a creative pursuit which has been practised for centuries. Get lost in the process and enjoy learning about the traditional methods of Japanese bookbinding through demonstrations and your own creative endeavour.

You'll be proud of your completed books and will gain joy from them for many years to come.

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!

Whether you're coming into the Guild of Objects to purchase handcrafted artisan wares, attend one of our creative workshops with a local artist or to learn business skills from our experts, we welcome you to our humble home in Hardware Lane, Melbourne.

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!

Jenna Pedersen Jun 2022


Loved this class! Kelly was a wonderful teacher, explained things well and made sure everyone was doing okay/not falling behind. The softcover bookbinding was a lot of fun, a very satisfying process and so lovely to look at finished product and be proud that you made it! (With the help of Kelly, of course!)
