Intro to Coptic Binding with Debra Plett

Coptic binding dates back to the 4th century where the technique of interlacing threads in carpet making was adapted. A herring bone chain stitch was used to bind sections of papyrus, and later parchment, together between wooden covers. The result is a book that is flexible without sacrificing strength. Because of its unique structure, the pages of a coptic bound book will lay completely flat which makes it perfect for displaying images, writing or sketching.

In this four-part class you will create two books; one with customized covers using decorative paper, and one with the traditional wooden covers. Both of your creations will be bound using the two needle coptic stitch.

Registration: $90

Supply kit fee: $25

Total: $115

Registration below.  All fees are due at the time of registration.  Payment can be made over the phone, though PayPal, or in person at C2 Centre for Craft, Wednesday to Saturday, 12 – 4 pm.
