Julie will be teaching a Traditional Japanese Four-Hole Binding from instructions in the book "Japanese Bookbinding" by Kojiro Ikegami. This is a non-adhesive binding, but we will use glue stick for one optional element.

She will bring the text pages and covering material for a book that is about 4" x 6".

Participants should bring, if they have: a cutting mat appropriate in size for this book, bonefolder, awl, scissors, metal ruler, dividers, glue stick and a small hammering mallet or small hammer to use on paper.

Julie will bring extras of anything that I have so participants should not feel compelled to purchase a tool they do not currently have.

She is also going to *try* to make and bring some of the other Japanese binding styles from the book so participants can see samples of the different styles.

Google map does not allow me to set a pin where the 'better' entrance is. I tried, and it got denied. 
The fine arts library has two entrances, and on the map is the more difficult one. The easiest way is - standing in front of Bass Concert Hall, to the left of this is another little stairs and entrance - to the fine arts library. Go up one flight (two, if you come from the Trinity entrance) and enter the library.

Ask at the library counter for the room for Austinbookworkers. Usually we have room 4.104, but that might change they told us.

The parking situation got a lot worse - UT requires permits now, this is new. There are stillfree places on East Dean Keaton heading Eastward, where you have to reverse in, they are currently still free after 6pm on Weekdays. We will talk with UT to see if we can get permits.

    Great experienced, skilled teacher who provided the materials kits and walked us through the instructions. Everyone walked out with a beautifully bound book and new skills.

    Fantastic! Julie went way over the top with her presentation. She was knowledgeable, patient, and funny. Her samples and her handouts were wonderful. Thank you, Julie!
