Japanese Stab Binding

One Day Workshop

Learn the meditative art of Japanese Stab Binding with bookbinder Esther Williams.

Stab binding is a simple and decorative method of bookbinding. In this workshop you’ll learn how to assemble a book, prepare the thread and create several beautiful notebooks each with a different stitch pattern.

This is a great method to start with if you’re a beginner, and if you’ve done some bookbinding before you can hone your skills with some more complex patterns


Esther Williams is a designer and bookbinder based in Somerset. 

She is the founder of Este Libro; a craft business hand- making artisan Coptic bound books and albums, (Hauser and Wirth Galleries and The British Library currently stock her work). She now teaches a variety of craft workshops including bookbinding workshops for beginners and improvers.
