Coptic Bookbinding

Tuesday 11th February 2020
1pm - 4pm, £35

Join Cassandra Barron at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall to get to grips with coptic binding and create an A6 decorative hardback book or journal…

This is bookbinding with an upcycled twist – we’ll use card remnants, decorative papers and heavy weight Flat White paper for the main body of your books, which is made from recycled coffee cups – great for sketching, watercolour and general note taking.

There’ll be lots of opportunity to personalise to your books, which also make great gifts if you have any birthdays or special occasions coming up! I’m passionate about repurposing materials and making the craft of bookbinding fun and accessible – so expect an informal atmosphere, lots of guidance and a cuppa to sip while you stitch!

Tickets and more information available via Bookbinding with Cass on Facebook.
