Coptic Binding (day sessions with Margot Ecke) will introduce students to a
book structure that dates back to 4th century Egypt. The Coptic binding
with wooden boards is a non-adhesive structure and is an ideal structure
for those who like to experiment with materials. The class will cover the
fundamentals of book construction: determining paper grain, folding and
trimming sections, as well as two types of sewing techniques. Students will
produce two books during the class and will discuss variations of the
Coptic structure. This class is suitable for all skill levels.

 Evening sessions with Michele Brown will guide participants in creating
four Japanese bindings, each with a different sewing pattern, concluding
with making a box in the Japanese wrap-around style to hold them.
Each workshop can be taken separately.  Call to inquire.
