Intro to Book Binding; Coptic Stitch

Tuesday, June 4th, 1:00–3:00pm

  • 2 hours
  • 65 US dollars

Service Description

In this 2-hour class, participants will be introduced to Coptic binding in book arts. Coptic binding is popular because it is a way of binding pages of a book together without glue or staples. Coptic-bound books lay flat and make the perfect binding for sketchbooks. In this workshop, participants will learn how to set up their sections for binding including making consistent holes, and preparing covers and wax thread. All supplies are included in the workshop costs and no experience is necessary. At the end of the class, each person will take home two Coptic bound, blank sketchbooks—perfect for gifts or around-the-house notepads. Book with a friend and see you at Paradise! ____________________ This course runs from 1:00pm–3:00pm on + Tuesday, June 4th _______________ Included in the course fee; + all paper for two coptic bound books + coverweight paper for cover and back covers + wax linen thread and needles for sewing _______________ About the instructor; Ashley is the owner of Paradise Press and Print Studio and loves teaching her favorite printmaking techniques.
