Coptic Bookbinding Workshop

Get ready to dive into the enchanting world of bookbinding!

In this workshop you’ll transform a stack of papers into a beautiful A5 sized journal with a decorative exposed spine, bound with Coptic Stitch.

This workshop is ideal for those with minimal book making experience, as you’ll learn all the foundations of making books including folding, creating deckle edges, grain of paper, layout of the book pages, punching holes, making covers and stitching.

Your journal will feature both blank papers and decorative papers. The inclusion of blank pages in your journal will enable you to use the book for nature journaling, note taking and sketching in your future plein air excursions.

This workshop will give you a great excuse to dig through your paper stash and use all of those beautiful papers you’ve been keeping for something special.

No art or bookmaking experience required.

You’ll need to bring:

  • A4 or larger blank papers – sheets of pads of watercolour paper, graph paper, lined paper etc
  • Decorative Papers – old book pages, old childrens’ books with illustrations, handmade paper, old artworks on paper, japanese papers, wrapping paper etc
  • Scissors for cutting papers
  • Nametag
  • Lunch and drinks

All tools and equipment will be supplied including board for covers, glue, thread, needles etc.
