  • Craftsbury Town Hall South Craftsbury Road Craftsbury, VT, 05826 United States (map)

Learn the whole Coptic bookbinding process from start to finish! We will select beautiful handmade papers for the hardbound covers, and sew the open-spine binding using a traditional paired needle Coptic binding technique. Coptic binding creates a lovely chain stitch results in a structurally strong book with high-quality mixed-media pages for writing, drawing, doodling, or whatever your heart desires! We will also learn how to make a button closure for our books. This promises to be a full-immersion experience in book-binding; participants will leave with a handmade book and a wealth of knowledge.

All materials are included!
