Learn the whole Coptic bookbinding process from start to finish! We will select beautiful handmade papers for the hardbound covers, and sew the open-spine binding using a traditional paired needle Coptic binding technique. Coptic binding creates a lovely chain stitch results in a structurally strong book with high-quality mixed-media pages for writing, drawing, doodling, or whatever your heart desires! We will also learn how to make a button closure for our books. This promises to be a full-immersion experience in book-binding; participants will leave with a handmade book and a wealth of knowledge. All materials are included! Open to participants ages 12 and older.
