Coptic Stitch Bookbinding

  • Paper Hammer 1400 2nd Avenue Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

In this workshop, we'll make a hardcover Coptic stitch journal. You'll learn to cut, drill, and cover boards, assemble the textblock, and sew with the beautiful exposed stitching that makes the Coptic structure unique. Everyone will leave with a completed book and a new set of skills.
