Coptic Bookbinding Kit & Workshop



In this workshop I'll show you how to get to grips with Coptic Binding – a decorative stitch that makes for a great sketchbook, Artists Book, photo album and/or memory book.

This popular bookbinding technique features a hard cover, decorative exposed stitching and visible spine. The book opens nice and flat and there are lots of opportunities to experiment with colour/pattern combinations on the cover, spine and inside decorative pages – a great book structure that you’ll come back to again and again.

My comprehensive step-by-step videos take you through the process and include ideas on how to personalise your books by creating collaged covers, decorative inside pages and unique fastenings.

What's included in the price?

My Coptic Bookbinding kit and workshop comes with:
*Pre-cut Flat White paper, made from recycled coffee cups, great for watercolour, sketching and general note taking
