Coptic binding is an ancient bookbinding method in which folded sections of paper are sewn together between rigid covers to create a decorative chain stitch across the exposed spine. This is an ideal method for binding albums and sketchbooks, as the book can be laid open entirely flat.
In this introductory class you will create a book with a flexible yet sturdy folded paper cover using your choice of decorative papers made in our studio. You will combine high quality bookbinding paper with mixed papers culled from our huge collection of found and reclaimed papers to create a one-of-a-kind journal or sketchbook. If you have any interesting found papers you wish to include in your book you’re welcome to bring them to class, but we will have lots of fun and beautiful treasures for you to choose from.
All materials, including paper, are provided, and you will leave the class with a finished book.
