In this workshop, participants will learn how to cover boards with decorative paper or book fabric, and assemble a blank journal using the exposed-spine sewing technique known as the Coptic Stitch.
Coptic bindings are characterized by one or more sections paper sewn through their folds, and attached to each other with chain stitch linkings across the spine. This binding style is non-adhesive and flexible.
