Event description

Description

Join us for a day of book binding with Anna from Purplebean Bindery.

Learn one of the classic bookbinding stitches - coptic binding. The coptic binding is an ancient way to sew together a book with wonderful contemporary applications. It’s a great binding technique to learn and master both for beginning bookbinders and experienced book artists. In this class we will focus on constructing a blank book, paying special attention to cover materials, page paper and the overall design of books as decorative and functional objects. Students will leave class with their own bound book in addition to instructions and tools to continue making coptic bound books.

No bookbinding experience is necessary. Please bring a hard cover book, no larger than 8.5” in any direction, to cut up and recycle the covers for your blank book!
