Learn how to construct a Coptic Stitch sketchbook with a block printed cover completely by hand! This binding style makes excellent sketchbooks and journals because of the way that they lay flat when you open them, so your book won’t close on you when you try to write or draw. In this class, you will be introduced to a variety of binding styles, the tools needed for bookbinding, linoleum block printing, and receive a step by step tutorial on a beautiful Coptic bound book of your very own! Every aspect of the process can be completely customized depending on what the book is being used for, making bookbinding an incredibly personal experience. The shape of the book, the texture of the paper, the color of the thread, can all communicate something different, which makes flipping through a new book almost as exciting as getting to know a new person!
Linoleum block printing
All necessary tools, materials and consumables will be provided, including thread, binder’s needles, bone folders, beeswax, awls, chipboard, paper, neutral PH glue, paintbrushes, ink, carving tools and linoleum blocks.
None; this is a great project-based class for any skill level!
