Learn to make these beautiful oriental book forms with bookbinder Megan Stallworthy, using traditional techniques and handmade and pattern papers. The Chinese Accordion book is an ingenious structure made using individual pages which interlock neatly together. We will also make a Kangxi Toji (Noble) Japanese binding and a ledger binding. All the materials and tools will be supplied, and you will take home three handmade books, a set of workshop notes and the skills to make more books at home.
