What's Included

Instructor: Natalie Stopka, nataliestopka.com The Japanese stab binding, or four hole binding, is the perfect softcover book structure for notebook or sketch pad. In this 3-hour class, we’ll cover the tools and materials it requires, as well as the history behind the book. Each student will leave with their own hand bound book, no prior experience required. Students may bring along lightweight papers they wish to incorporate into the binding. -- The After Workshops are a series of high quality hands-on classes, at low cost and low commitment. Materials, skills and fun supplied. And it's BYOB.

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 


Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
