Introduction To Bookbinding

Friday 15th March 2019
7pm - 9pm, £30

Coptic stitching is an ancient form of bookbinding identifiable by the exposed stitching on the spine of the book and is often used by artists as coptic bound books make beautiful and versatile sketchbooks. In this workshop you will produce a hand-bound notebook, covered in a decorative paper of your choosing, and taught in a way that can easily be replicated at home, with tips and tricks to achieve this.
