Coptic Stitch Bookbinding with Sprouts Press
Thu, 25 May 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Learn how to make your own Hard Cover Coptic Journal with Carolyn of Sprouts Press Designs. We'll cover the basics of bookbinding, go over the tools of the trade and then learn how to put it all together into a beautiful handcrafted journal. This is a hands-on class and students will leave with a finished project.
All materials are supplied. This workshop is intended for adults. This is a great introduction to bookbinding, and also suitable for more experienced paper crafters, looking for a refresher.
About Sprouts Press, by owner/artist Carolyn Eady:
SproutsPress home studio is a busy and multi-disciplinary space, where an ever-changing and growing skill set is used and many different things are created. But it always comes back to a love of books: to write in, to sketch in, to ponder, read, admire, examine and fully, wholeheartedly enjoy.
When crafting hand-bound books, using thread and needle and a variety of binding stitches, some ancient and some that I created, I consider size, shape, texture, colour and practicality. Aesthetics are important, but I also really want people to express their hearts out on the pages of the books I make. These are objects designed to be used, well worn and well loved.
Bonus: on the day of the workshop, participants will get 10% off all regularly-priced merchandise in our gift shop.
