We used the same instructions in the art classroom that you will receive in the Paper Cloth PDF File. They turned out so great! The students loved the process, had fun and were pleased with their results. Be sure to share examples of work you or your students create with paper cloth!”
“These are examples of my 9th & 10th grade students’ Japanese Stab Bound books that they made with the same instructions you will be receiving in the Lab PDF file. They loved making these books and used the paper cloth they created to cover the book boards of their handmade books! There were so many individual interpretations of the process, a sure sign that student voice and choice shines through their artwork.” – Christine Miller
