Join Teaching Artist Rachael Eastman for workshop on Coptic Stitch Bookmaking using Recycled Book Covers.
April 22nd, 1:00-4:00pm
In this workshop attendees will explore Bookmaking using the Coptic stitch and recycled book covers gathered from the Moscow Recycling Center. Coptic binding is a way of binding pages of a book together without glue or staples. Coptic binding was originally employed by early Christians in Egypt, called the Copts, and used from as early as the 2nd century AD. In this workshop attendees will learn about the Coptic stitch and how to use it to create a sketchbook or journal with a recycled book cover.
All materials will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring any papers they would like to use or participants have a specific book they would like to use for their project. Note, that the book pages will have to be removed prior to sewing the new book.
