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.
