About the event

During this one-day workshop you will learn the two needle Coptic binding stitch to produce a hard-cover book with a decorative chain stitched spine and pages that open flat. It is perfect for sketchbooks, notebooks or a special photo album.

The technique is less complicated than it looks and requires a minimum of equipment. This workshop introduces students to multi-section binding by using the Coptic stitch to make an A6 sized book with 64 pages of Kent edition drawing paper. We will look at a range of cover options and you will learn how to adapt the basic design to create books of different sizes and shapes.
