Instructor Callum McKenzie will guide participants through the process of making a Japanese stab-bound (fukuro-toji) book and a pamphlet stitch book.

Callum McKenzie (he/they) is an Edmonton-based emerging artist and printmaker. They earned their Bachelor of Design in Printmaking from the University of Alberta in 2022 and completed an Emerging Artist in Residence program at SNAP Gallery in 2023.

Callum has shown their work in a number of curated shows and exhibitions including Inner Space in FAB Gallery and How Could I Know If No One Ever Told Me in SNAP Gallery.
