Coptic Bound Journal
In this 2-part workshop students will create a custom Coptic bound book that can be used as a journal or sketchbook. In the first class, students we will discuss the anatomy of the book and the use of book arts tools, then will design the covers and interior signatures of the book. A variety of decorative papers will be available for the front and back covers, but feel free to bring in additional papers you may have and want to use to personalize your book. The second class will be spent learning the Coptic binding technique and sewing our books together. Students will leave with a custom hardbound Coptic book that is 9 ½” x 6 ½” with interior pages that are 8 ½” x 5 ½”, along with handouts with instructions for future book making.
