Coptic Binding Workshop
Petaluma, CA
June 16 : 10am-3pm with a 30 minute lunch break.

In this one day bookbinding workshop students will learn and make two versions of coptic bound books with hard covers and beautifully sewn exposed spines. Basic paper information, tools, and techniques will be covered. Class size is limited to 5 students to accommodate our studio space. Materials are included in class fee although some basic tools will be required to bring from home. I will send a list of tools and other logistics by June 7. This workshop is appropriate for beginners and intermediate levels. 

Workshop is taught by Beth Schaible, proprietor of Quill and Arrow. She has taught at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, Penland School of Crafts, 7 Ton Co., Asheville Bookworks, and more. She works full time as a bookbinder, letterpress printer, calligrapher, and graphic designer in Petaluma, CA.
