Coptic Bookbinding with Meredith Purvis

Workshop Description:

Join visiting artist Meredith Purvis as she teaches us the art of bookbinding from the pages up. In this four-hour class, you'll make an open spine, hardcover book using the coptic style. This beautiful exposed stitch will allow your book to lay completely flat when open - a bonus for creative work!

Your one of a kind book will be perfect as a sketch book, journal, or a handmade gift. Beginners welcome! All materials will be provided for this class, but feel free to bring any decorative paper that you've been saving to make it your own.
