Bookbinding is one of the most versatile skills a maker can add to their toolbelt. From sketchbooks and diaries to one-of-a-kind gifts and heirloom keepsakes – the possibilities are endless once you know how to Coptic stitch.

Designed for beginners who can’t find a needle in a haystack, and those with a little more experience, alike! This class is for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of handmade books, traditional stitching techniques, and the potential of paper!

This class is geared up to get you sewing in no time. Everything is provided for you in a handy kit, so all you need to do is turn up to get making! Participants should be 16+ and this workshop is suitable for beginners or those with experience. All materials will be provided, just bring yourself and your can-do attitude. Masks must be worn for the duration of the workshop. Thank you for understanding and for helping to keep our community safe.
