Belgian Book Binding Workshop

Belgian or "Secret Belgian" binding is a contemporary style book that combines the look of Japanese stab binding with the functionality of a Coptic sketchbook.  It looks complicated but is easy to learn.  No experience is necessary to join in this workshop, and you will make a completed blank book in one day.

This workshop runs from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. with a one hour lunch break at a natural stopping point.

Participants will be guided through covering boards with decorative paper, choosing a pattern for piercing and sewing the covers together, fold gatherings, and stitch them into place.

The resulting journal is a stylish and functional notebook that makes a statement blending contemporary and ancient styles.

Cost: $50

Coptic Binding 1 Workshop

Coptic binding dates to the Second Century A.D.E.  Practiced by early Christians in Egypt, the Nag Hammadi or Gnostic Gospels, were sewn in this chain-stitch style.  Get your Davinci Code on by re-creating this historical book style.

Practically speaking, a Coptic journal makes an excellent sketch book or notebook because its pages will lay completely throughout the book.  It is functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Participants in Coptic Binding 1 need no prior experience in book binding.  We will cover boards in decorative paper, pierce the boards for decorative sewing, assemble sheets into gatherings, and prepare those for sewing.  Participants will make all of the pieces necessary to assemble a Coptic-sewn journal.

Cost: $25

Our featured artist this December is Mary Miller, a local artist who specializes in hand-carved printing. She learned linoleum carving from Bob Harley from South Side High School, and from there took classes at both Ball State and Anderson Universities. Mary most often carves her work into pieces of soft wood and prints them using spoons.

Mary has a dedication to her craft, and a passion for others. For years, she has made cards for nursing home residents in the area. This year, Book Arts Collaborative is happy to partner with Mary by offering printing workshops in nursing homes this holiday season.
