Join Michelle from Paperazzi Design Studio and learn the art of Coptic Bookbinding.
In this workshop you will be able to create a book with a visible spine stitch and a hardback cover.
You will learn the technique behind the trademark Coptic spine stitch which resembles a chain stitch as used in embroidery and create a book that has each page opening perfectly flat.
Coptic books are ideal for visual diaries, photo albums, digital media portfolios and a host of other applications – perfect for gifts!
No experience necessary and all materials and light refreshments will be provided!
Come along and have fun creating your very own handmade coptic spine book to take home.
