This is a two day class where we will eco print on paper and then make a lovely book with our printed papers. You will learn the magic of eco-printing on paper with the use of mordants and modifiers.
Then we will make a Coptic Book; a traditional multi-signature book which uses one of the oldest stitches in bookbinding. The spine is exposed showing the lovely regular stitches using pairs of needles. It is a simple and lovely way to bind a book. We will use a pad of mixed media paper which makes the preparation of the pages simple and quick. The finished book will be 6 X 4.5 inches. If you have some experience with hand sewing a book and you’d like to make a bigger book, please let me know.
