Make a Coptic Bound Sketchbook with Kae Carlstedt-Duke
Sunday 29 Mar | 10am – 4pm | £55

Coptic stitched books allow the book to be opened up flat without weakening the spine or sections – very useful for sketchbooks! In this workshop we will use one of the oldest (4th Century) methods of binding to create a hardbound A4 landscape sketchbook. You will learn some useful bookbinding techniques, paper folding, cutting and sewing an exposed spine, with the option of an additional technique of creating a recessed front cover. A wide range of materials will be provided. Suitable for beginners and those with some bookbinding experience.
