Artist’s Sketchbook - Coptic Binding

This course, across 4 days, will introduce the remarkably versatile Coptic Binding, an
ancient and highly useful binding which is particularly appropriate for artists as it lays
completely flat when open, even with lots of pages. It is hard-backed, can have decorative
stitching as well as hold a range of papers of different weights and surfaces. Pockets, fold-outs, windows and tiny internal books can be included for fun.

Most materials will be provided but please check the materials list for what to bring along. There will also be a few folded paper structures – for a little light relief!
