Workshop: Coptic Bookbinding with Anneka Baird, in Partnership with the Driftless Folk School

April 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

book binding

Coptic bookbinding was developed by the Egyptian Copts in the 2nd century A.D. and represents the earliest known form of a true codex. This multisection, nonadhesive binding features an exposed spine that reveals the decorative, braid-like sewing of the binding—commonly known as a chain stitch. These books lie flat when opened, making them easy to write in and an ideal for journals and notebooks. This class will include a brief introduction to material considerations, and each participant will bind a book to take home.

All tools and materials will be provided. Feel free to bring a notebook to take notes.

Sliding Scale Course Fee $35-$65 (not including Materials Fees)
