Rustic Leather Coptic Journal

Studio Place Arts (SPA)
201 North Main Street
Wednesday March 10, 2015: 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

There have been other leather journal workshops at SPA; however, in this workshop, participants will learn a new bookmaking technique. They will create a journal with a double-needle Coptic binding, an intricate stitch that will be visible on the spine of the book. Not only is the coptic binding beautiful, but it also allows books to remain flat when opened. Instead of making hard covers, we’ll be using leather for a softer, more relaxed look.
In this two-day workshop, each participant will leave class with a completed book and a basic knowledge of bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. Some bookbinding or sewing experience is helpful, but not required.
Materials fee: $12.00
Supplies: Awl, bone folder, ruler, X-Acto knife and/or utility knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil, glue brush
- Note: Bring the the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.
Cost: Members $55.00/Non-Members $65.00
