Hardcover Bookbinding: Coptic Stitch
Taught by Kelly Laughlin
Kelly Laughlin is a multidisciplinary artist and educator who focuses on the playful, meditative acts of making. She believes every person is capable of living a creative life. Kelly is the founder of Odette Press, a paper marbling and bookbinding studio focused on specialty papers, books, and stationery, created with the intention to support self discovery and healing through the act of writing.
A book serves as a meaningful space for ideas, dreams, and reflections. In this class, join Kelly Laughlin of Odette Press as you create a small hardcover, cloth bound, coptic stitched book that lays flat when opened -- perfect to use as a photo album, sketchbook, or guestbook.
Expand your understanding of the bookbinding process, explore multiple signature binding, and walk away with a carefully crafted container for your memories and dreams.
This class is perfect for anyone who has taken the beginner’s bookbinding class or has had some experience with the bookbinding process and is interested in learning more. All materials for creating the book will be provided (paper, cloth, glue, thread). If you've taken a bookbinding class before, bring your awl + bone folder! (We will have extras for you to borrow if needed). Have a marbled or decorative paper you’d like to use? Bring it along!
