Coptic Binding

Coptic Binding
Coptic binding or book sewing was practiced by 2nd Century Christians in Egypt.  Coptic is the first codex style, or the beginning of the book as we know it today.  It is the form used in the nag hamadi, or the books made widely known by Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code story.  Come learn how to do this ancient and beautiful stitch in one afternoon.  If you’ve participated in the previous weekend’s workshop in paper decorating, you’ll be invited to use your own paper designs in your book.  See the Registration page for a discount if you register for both paper decorating and this workshop.
