Program Description

Event Details

Come learn to bind a book using coptic binding. This technique involves stitching bundles of pages, or signatures, directly to the cover. In this second book binding program, we'll talk about preparing a neat cover that sits flat on a shelf, plus learn a new binding stitch. If you couldn't make the first session, no problem.
