Please note, this two-day workshop takes place on Tuesdays, January 18 + January 25 from 6pm – 8pm each evening.
Used in Egypt as early as the 2nd century AD, Coptic bindings feature chain stitch links across the spine to attach sections of folded paper to a hard cover. In the first session of this class, participants will learn paper tearing and gluing techniques to create a block of pages and a hard book cover. In the second session of this class, participants will bring the prepared book parts together using the coptic stitching technique. Each participant will leave class with their own Coptic bound book made from upcycled materials. Participants are welcome to use their own decorative paper in the first class to personalize their covers.
This is an in-person class that will take place at Perennial. You will be assigned your own socially distanced work station, and will be required to wear a mask while you are here. Our full policies can be found here.
