Bookbinding: Coptic Binding

  • blackbird letterpress 1607 Main Street Baton Rouge, LA, 70802 United States (map)

In this class you will learn the basics of coptic binding, gathering and sewing pages into a hard cover book, taught by Kathryn Hunter. Each student will get to choose a vintage book cover for their book from our collection, or bring your own vintage cover. Your book can either have blank pages or use our preprinted datebook pages. Small enough to fit in your bag, large enough for sketching. Coptic binding is a beautiful bookbinding method using a hard cover with visible sewing along the spine, AND it opens flat for easy use. Registration and pre-payment is required. Saturday July 29 10am-3pm.

Pre registration is required. Sign up here!
