Your course is hosted by Thinkific - you will receive an email immediately after purchase from Thinkific with details on how to access the course, so look out for that when you join us.



This course will introduce you to the stab binding method found in East Asian bookbinding. You will learn how to stack paper, make covers and prepare your papers ready for a variety of stab binding designs.

On this online course you will create three books of the same size, each with a different binding design:

  • There hole binding
  • Noble binding
  • Hemp Leaf binding

You will also create a Japanese slip case for your books to be held within. We will create a hard cover slipcase using book cloth and greyboard. Photos also show creating a slipcase box in decorative paper. We just make one box on the course but both paper and cloth are provided in the kit, so you can choose which covering to use.


Our kits provide you with all of the materials needed to create this project. Add our new Japanese tool kit (limited stock) to make these books or if you already have these tools just choose the online tuition option.

Materials Kit includes:

  • Book paper
  • Kraft card stock
  • Linen thread in 3 colours
  • Bookcloth (colours may vary)
  • A3 Decorative Japanese paper (designs may vary)
  • Greyboard

Tool Kit includes:

  • Japanese screw punch
  • Bonefolder
  • Needle kit

I look forward to welcoming you into the world of stab bookbinding! Our kits are only available as a pre-order. Make sure you reserve a kit by 25th February 2024.
