Binding the Embellished Page

Hurricane, West Virginia


In this two-day workshop, participants will bind a book of their own previously completed journal pages with the handsome Ethiopian Coptic stitch and Coptic headbands. Prior to the workshop, folded sheets of Arches Text Wove paper will be delivered for the partakers to draw, paint, write, collage, or print on the surfaces. Helpful suggestions for page decoration will come with the folded paper.


During the workshop, the covers will be made of double-thick boards wrapped with textured paper. After a discussion on the different Coptic stitches, people will drill holes in waste boards and practice the Ethiopian Stitch using two needles. This exercise is preparation for the four-needle sewing of their own books. The distinctive Coptic headbands will finish the journal and strengthen the cover-to-text attachment.
