Make It at the Library: A Book-Binding Workshop | Karachi

Sunday 25th November 14:00 17:00

Try your hand at the craft of bookbinding at our hands-on workshop!

About the event

This month, make your own hand-bound book at the library!

Join us for an exciting afternoon as we master the basics of book-binding to create beautiful notebooks and sketchbooks with a professional finish! Learn how adhesives and book-binding materials are used as we take you through three different techniques, namely the saddle stitch, Japanese 4-Hole binding and the Coptic stitch.

Each participant will receive a free kit – so come and try your hand at the craft of book-binding as you make a simple binding to take home from our hands-on workshop.

All materials and tools will be provided and no previous experience is required.
