One-Day COPTIC BOOKBINDING: MAKE A MIXED MEDIA BLANK BOOK
SUNDAY, March 1st: (workshop is 4 hours including 15 minute break) 12:00pm - 4:00pm
This class has filled. Please contact us at 541-683-2787 if you would like to be on our waiting list.
With no previous experience, you can bind your own blank book using the ancient book binding technique called coptic binding.
Your finished blank book will be small enough to pack or carry at 6 x 9 inches. But large enough for a sketch or letter. The bound pages of sturdy Mixed Media Paper hold pen and ink, watercolor, gauche, oil pastel, pencil, collage, and photos or just your stylish shopping lists! This binding style allows pages to lie flat as you work, so wet glue, ink or paint can dry.
You will hard cover the book with a decorative paper of your choice (purchase before class, and I can help guide you if you’d like). Choose from the extensive collection of handmade and printed fine papers at Oregon Art supply. Option to personalize your book for yourself or a gift, with the brass title plate provided.

One 4 hour session with a 20 minute break. Maximum of 4 students.
