Join me for an afternoon of book arts and folding fun as we make a Japanese stab bound book that has folded cranes on the fore edge of each page.. You will learn some basic origami terms, a simple but lovely stab binding and time saving tips. Paper, waxed linen thread, templates, and instructions will be provided for this class.
