    Experience the ancient craft of watoji, or Japanese bookbinding, a traditional method that has long been used to stitch and bind literary works together. At this workshop, mixed media artist Amanda Hu will instruct participants on how to create their very own hand-bound book using beautiful washi paper—perfect for notes, journals, or scrapbooks! Participants of all skill levels will leave this workshop with a greater appreciation for traditional bookbinding as well as a charming memento of their experience.

    All materials included.
