Japanese Accordion Book & Box

2 days Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Lucy May Schofield

About the course:

Join Lucy for a special two-day Summer school learning the unique art of Japanese hardback accordion book and drop back box making. Using Japanese mulberry paper, nori rice glue and traditional folding and joining techniques, you will create a deceptively seamless double-sided book with hard covers.

On day two you will go on to create an elegant drop back box complete with clasps and patterned lining papers to house your accordion book. The skills acquired during this workshop will allow printmakers to use these techniques in the future to turn their prints into stunning artist’s book editions.
