Coptic Style Bookbinding

April 20, 10 AM to 12:30 PM

Learn how to make a Coptic-style hand-sewn book using vintage book covers, turning an old item into a beautiful new sketchbook or journal! Coptic binding is one of the oldest bookbinding methods in history, and deceptively simple – the flexible binding allows the book to open flat, and the exposed looping stitches create a beautiful braid-like effect. No prior bookbinding experience is required, and all materials will be provided!
