This is an advanced workshop for participants who have taken at least one book binding workshop at Book Arts Collaborative before.

Participants will take their design and sewing skills up a notch by sewing a word into the spine of the book.  The sewing will bind the book together.

At Word Coptic Workshop one, participants will start with boards and gatherings prepared for their books.  The first workshop in this series will cover practical concerns about choosing words and plotting letter placement to ensure the smooth operation of the book.  Participants will begin sewing by attaching the first cover to their gatherings.

This workshop meets from 6-9 p.m. on two consecutive Wednesday evenings.

See registration information below.

Cost for both Wednesday evenings: $50
