Coptic Bookbinding Workshop

Sunday, July 21, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm




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.

s 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 field 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 – sketches, drawings, japanese papers, wrapping paper etc
  • Notebook and pencil
  • Scissors for cutting papers
  • Nametag
  • Lunch and drinks

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