Fieldtripp Focus – Blim’s Japanese Book Binding

Blim is an art space located at Vancouver’s chinatown. It’s a platform for artists and small businesses run by artists. An indie space where you are free to create.

Since 2003, Blim has been bringing together creators through workshops, screening, and other creative media. Blim believes that creative expression is a hallmark of health, and that sure is something we agree on.

Their Japanese book binding workshop is one worth trying. Headed by Suzan Lee, a bookbinding teacher for over 10 years, learn the traditional Japanese stab binding technique. You will be bringing home 2 books. The first, bound through the classic four hole stitch pattern and the second is a binding of your own pattern choice—tortoise shell, hemp leaf, or noble.

Bookbinding is perfect for your scrapbooking and keepsaking needs. Also, it makes a great gift to your loved ones—something that’s very personal and handmade. Sign up now and immerse yourself in a new craft with a community that promotes creativity and well-being. You may also access Blim’s site for a calendar of their workshops and scan through our sites for available ones. Happy binding! And see you there.
