Coptic binding is a way of binding a book with an exposed spine sewing. The method was developed by the Copts and has been used from as early as the second century. In coptic binding, the sections are linked together using chain stitch, and the book is able to open flat, which makes it an excellent choice of binding for sketchbooks and journals. There are many variations and methods used to make a coptic book, and the stitching can be extremely decorative. In this workshop, we will make a coptic book using the 4-needle method of sewing.
IN this workshop you will complete one book.
