Helen Handmade Books Coptic Binding
18 May/10:00 AM:4:00 PM BST£95
Join the lovely Helen Perry for a day creating your own handmade book. You can bring your old prints along for inclusion as end papers. A great day perfecting or learning new skills.
The historic and beautiful ‘coptic’ binding is a very popular class.
The binding allows the book to lie perfectly flat and also to open to 180 degrees, making it popular amongst other things as a journal, travel book or artist sketch book. Also, the exposed spine stitching has enormous visual appeal.
During the day you will learn how to prepare the pages for binding as well as deciding on your own personal decorative style for board covering before getting to grips with the stitching.
This is an ideal book structure for artists and printmakers you may wish to bring and use one of your own printed papers for the cover.
Suitable for beginners
