This class will take place on:
Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST
Coptic stitch – one of the oldest and useful book structures – is a simple sewn book that is extremely flexible. Because of its ability to fold back onto itself, it is the perfect structure for sketchbooks, journals, and datebooks. By the end of this two-hour workshop, participants will each have their own soft-cover coptic book!
There are a total of 40 spots open in this workshop.
