Class: Dos-a-Dos Coptic Stitch Book with Anne Engelhardt

Anne Engelhardt returns to CP2 Saturday morning to share this ancient bookbinding art form.  Coptic book binding methods date back to the 2nd century AD, developed by early Christians in Egypt (thank you, Wikipedia!).  Anne adds a dash of her paper wizardry and creates not one, but two books bound together to become one truly unique project.  The addition of Anne's elegant trademark papers elevate the beauty and craftsmanship of this piece even further.  Keep this clever journal for yourself or give it to someone special, though it will undoubtedly be difficult to part with.  Bring your book making kit:  scissors, pencil, metal edge ruler, awl, and glue paper.  Anne will provide linen thread, needles and good paper glue.

April 16th, Saturday:  10:00am - 12:00pm ($25.00)
