Event description

Description

The Nag Hammadi codices take their name from the Egyptian village where in 1945 a clay pot containing thirteen ancient books was discovered. These books are the earliest extant codex bindings ever found – 1800 years old – and were uncovered in remarkably good condition. Students will construct a sympathetic facsimile of the Nag Hammadi codex, and experience the structure and form of ancient bookbinding. Partially pre-cut papyrus and leather for the covers is supplied (material fee is $30.00).

Bring a cutting mat if you have one. All bookbinding tools and shop supplies will be provided for those without.
