Coptic Bookbinding

Coptic binding is a method of bookbinding used by early Christians in Egypt, the Copts, and used from as early as the 2nd century AD to the 11th century. The term is also used to describe modern bindings sewn in the same style. In this class, students will make their own Coptic style book. This will include sewing the pages together, sewing on the cover boards and applying decorative paper or cloth to the cover. The sewing style is a link stitch using 4 needles. Students will leave the class with a finished book and source information for materials used in the book.
