Japanese Binding - Bookmaking Workshop (online)

Date: July 25th & 26th 10:00am - 12:00pm

In 2 two-hour online sessions (Saturday and Sunday), workshop participants will learn four traditional techniques of Japanese bookbinding: 4-hole, Hemp Leaf, Tortoise Shell, and Noble binding.

  • 4 different handmade book templates
  • 1 binding needle

Instructor: Brian Hitselberger

Brian Hitselberger (b. 1982) is an artist living and working in Athens, Georgia.

His installations, paintings, and works on paper explore a variety of themes that shift between subjects and perspectives alternately intimate and immense – occasionally within the same piece. Recent subjects include sleeping and dreaming, hate speech, drag queens as spiritual healers, and queer magic. Although working across a variety of media, Brian is a committed studio artist, and positions technique and material at the center of his studio practice. 

His work has been exhibited throughout the Southeast and the Mid-Atlantic. He has held residencies at the Elsewhere Artists Collaborative, the HUB-BUB Arts Initiative, and the Hambidge Center for the Arts. He has received funding for his work from the Georgia Council for the Arts, the Willson Center for the Humanities, and the Andy Warhol Foundation. He received a BFA in Printmaking from Tulane University in 2005, and an MFA in Painting from the University of Georgia in 2010. He is currently an Associate Professor of Painting and Printmaking in the Art Department of Piedmont College and represented by {Poem88} in Atlanta.

Class FAQ

Q:  What ages are your classes for?

A:  Our classes are generally for adults, but we welcome younger students as long as they are comfortable and skilled enough to take classes with adults. Please reach out if you have any questions. For pre-teens and teens, we also offer weekly Art Clubs on Friday nights.

Q:  What are you doing to prevent Zoombombers?

A:  We are using the "waiting room" feature on Zoom. When you join the meeting, you'll be taken to this waiting room so that we can verify who you are and that you've registered for class. Once verified, you'll be admitted to the virtual classroom. (This is why we ask that you arrive ten minutes early.) No one will be admitted into our classroom except legitimate students. Here's an informative video about Zoom Waiting Rooms.
