Learn to bind your own unique and functional books, perfect for journaling or sketching. Beginning with simple folded and sewn structures, the class will work toward more complex bindings with exposed stitching that is both decorative and functional. The class will explore traditional techniques with an emphasis on using quality papers with interesting patterns and textures. Binding styles include the versatile Italian longstitch, which dates to the 1700s, and the Coptic binding, developed by early Christians in Egypt. All materials and tools will be provided.
