Bookbinding – Make a Mixed Media Journal using a Butterfly Binding
April 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Learn the process of Butterfly Binding & Mixed media art journaling
Butterfly binding – This is a slim binding of 4 signatures with signature wrappers. It is a modern take on a Japanese Butterfly binding (detchō or kochōsō in Japan) which came into use, around 1000 AD with the advent of printing. Each piece of paper was folded in half and laid on top of its predecessor; a cover was glued to the folded edges. When opened, each pair of pages “tends to stand up with an effect resembling the wings of a butterfly.”
Mixed Media is a creative way of making art using many different media and supplies. Mixed media artists use the materials they have on hand like crayons, markers, paint, fabric with other items such as paper scraps or found objects to create art that can be used for various purposes. This journal is made using blank mixed media paper and not printed paper as in a traditional binding.
