Coptic Stitch Bookbinding with Jillian Barthold
Make your very own blank Coptic Stitch hand-bound book! In this workshop you’ll learn the basic tools used in bookbinding and the step by step process of making a hard cover coptic stitch book! Coptic stitch binding is one of the earliest forms of bookbinding and is sewn with thread leaving an exposed spine. You’ll leave with your very own blank book to use as a journal, recipe book, or sketchbook! Beginners to Advanced – All skill levels welcome!
Jillian Barthold is an illustrator, printmaker, bookbinder, and maker from nowhere. Her work acts as a magnifying glass to explore the everyday objects that surround us. She teaches screenprinting and book arts at the IPRC (Independent Publishing Resource Center), loves looking at maps, and wears glitter every single day. She is the co-founder of Fruit Salad Club, an unapologetically silly studio, community, and gallery space in Portland, OR.
