Bookbinding Workshop – Coptic Stitch Summer Journal

Welcome summer by joining us for a relaxing morning of bookbinding as we create beautifully bound summer journals! In this beginner bookbinding workshop, students will create a bound journal from start to finish. Learn how to use decorative papers to create the covers for your books, prepare pages, and sew all of the parts of the book together using a beautiful stitching technique called the coptic stitch. This stitch not only creates an attractive pattern on the exterior spine of the book; it also allows the book to open and lay flat on your working surface, making sketching and writing easy and comfortable.
