This full day workshop will explore the basic structure of Coptic Stitch and French Link bookbinding. Each student will learn to make a one-of-a-kind handmade book for each structure. This class will cover the use of specific materials, as well as tips on craftsmanship and production. Coptic Stitching is one of the most popular and accessible forms of bookbinding.
