Japanese Scroll (maki-mono) & Accordion (ori-hon) Book Making

Date: 23 July - 24 July 2020
Venue: Centre for Fine Print Research, Bower Ashton
Venue Location: https://www1.uwe.ac.uk/about/visitus/howtofindus/howtofindcitycampus.aspx
Time: 9:30 - 16:30


This is an intensive two-day workshop on the traditional Japanese art of scroll making and accordion book making.

Participants can expect to complete the course with two structures of approx. A5 size, both a cloth-covered scroll and a cloth-covered accordion book to take home.

These two structures are the oldest forms of books in Japan, combining washi (mulberry paper) and nori (rice paste). Over the two days you will learn the skills to mount book cloth with paper using the urauchi method alongside the techniques of creating invisible, seamless accordion pages for a double-sided cloth-covered hard-back accordion book.

The traditional skills acquired on this workshop will allow you to use them in contemporary book arts projects in the future. This workshop is being hosted exclusively by the Centre for Fine Print Research.

The course price includes all materials and catering.

This course will be held at UWE Bristol's beautiful Bower Ashton Studios set in the stunning Ashton Court park. With a maximum of eight participants sign up early to secure your place.
