Coptic Stitch Bookbinding :: April 10, 2022 :: 1-5pm
Coptic Stitch Book Binding is a hand sewn book making technique used to create hard cover books that lay flat when open. Coptic stitched books can be made in a variety of sizes and thicknesses, allowing for versatility in its end use.
In this workshop, you will learn each step of the process:
· Planning your book size and layout of materials
· How to choose materials and tools
· Covering book boards with unique papers
· Sewing the signatures (bundles of pages) to create the body of the book
· Ways to incorporate your own personal style
You will complete a book and take home the skills to continue the craft on your own. All materials are included in the class materials fee, but you are welcome to bring a favorite paper or two for your covers.
Join me in exploring this traditional book making technique and be inspired to make your own journals, artist books, and sketchbooks.
INVESTMENT: $70 with a $15 materials fees
