September 2021 Stab Binding (Coptic) Course

Date: 

Saturday, September 18th, 2021 - 9:00 AM to Sunday, September 19th, 2021 - 4:00 PM

Welcome to the September Stab Binding Bookbinding workshop. This is a great introduction to making your own books using very traditional techniques. We do two styles, the Coptic (or European) style of stab bindings, and the traditional Japanese 4 hole style. This is the first time we have offered this course.

Stab bindings require very little in terms of special tools and equipment, and use very little glue. Books are stitched together with a decorative thread that is both visible on the spine and a highly decorative element of the style.

This course is $115.00 for the course, and all tools and materials are provided. This course takes place over a single weekend, for a total of 12 hours of tuition. The dates are 18th and 19th of September. Payment is made prior to attendance with a maximum of 9 attendees.
