Full Event Information

Learn how to make a beautifully bound journal or sketchbook in this Coptic Bookbinding Workshop.

This workshop is great for anyone who has an interest in bookbinding or just wants to make themselves or someone else a beautiful handmade gift. A lovely workshop for beginners.

Coptic is one of the oldest bookbinding stitches that allows a book to open out completely flat, which is great for writing and drawing. You will make a decoratively bound, A5 or A6 journal or sketchbook that opens out completely flat using a technique that dates back over 2000 years.

In this workshop you will:
- learn about paper grain
- use traditional bookbinding tools
- learn how to cut and fold paper into signatures (inner pages)
- cover the hardback cover with decorative papers
- use waxed thread to personalise your book and create a beautiful book using the Coptic stitch technique

At the end of this workshop you will have a beautifully bound book as well as the skills and knowledge to create more at home.

Cost: £55 to include tea & coffee and all materials except outer cover papers. Papers will be available to purchase from the tutor on the day at an extra cost of £2 - £6, but if you have something yourself that you would like to use, please bring it along, nothing too shiny as this type of paper tends not to work so well.

Bring: lunch and glasses if you wear them.

Cancellation deadline: 17th November
