[BKARTS] Book Arts in Ithaca

Just a reminder about the upcoming "Bookbinding Intensive II" at the Ink
Shop in Ithaca, NY.

Bookbinding Intensive II: Coptic Binding with Wooden Boards & Japanese Binding with a Wrap-Around Box

Margot Ecke and Michele Brown

Saturday and Sunday  10 AM - 4 PM and evenings 6 - 9 PM
May 14 and 15   $280/ $238 (+$45 for materials)
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.

Margot Ecke holds a BFA from Cornell University and a MFA from Rhode Island
School of Design.  She earned a Printer's Certificate from Tamarind
Institute and a Certificate of Bookbinding from North Bennet Street
School.  She currently has a Victor Hammer Fellow Residency in Book Arts at
Wells College.

 Michele Brown earned a certificate in Hand Bookbinding and Restoration
from the Camberwell School of Art and Crafts, London,  in 1977. She has
been Book Conservator at Cornell University since 1995, and was
Bookbinder-In-Residence at Wells College  for six years teaching beginning

Japanese and western bookbinding techniques.
