Event description

Description

During this one-day workshop you will learn how to make a Coptic book. This historic binding uses decorative boards and has exposed sewing at the spine. The book lies flat when open and is popular amongst other things as a journal, travel book or artist sketchbook. It can be made at home with minimal equipment, and makes a fabulous gift.
Traditional variations on this book and samples will be available to examine and photograph.

This workshop will be given by Edel Hopkin, a renowned bookbinder. Edel, a former development management trainer, went onto take an internship with a traditional bookbinders in Cambridge. After gaining the foundations of bookbinding Edel developed her own style mixing traditional skills with contemporary crispness. She experiments with both materials and technique delivering exciting eclectic new book formats.
