Instructor: Sylvia Tomayko-Peters, owner of Middle Dune

Learn to make a hardcover notebook from start to finish using one of the most ancient bookbinding techniques, the beautiful exposed coptic stitch. In this intensive one day workshop we'll cover the book binding basics from sizing and cutting to assembly and then move on to sewing the spine using the coptic method. Your coptic journal will be perfect for writing or sketching since all pages lie completely flat when opened.

Materials: $7 fee payable to the instructor covers all materials. If you have particular decorative papers you would like to use, feel free to bring them!
