ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The Coptic stitch bookbinding method – the stitch with an exposed spine that opens up the book completely flat. Invented by early Christians in Egypt, the Copts, and used from as early as the 2nd Century AD to the 11th Century. This stitch appeared to be a very sleek and distinctive braid or chain pattern. Fee includes equipment, materials, and light refreshments.
