For those of you who can't get to my studio for a class, if you'd like to learn how to create a Coptic Bound book, this is the class for you.
PLEASE NOTE : This class is split over two sessions (two weeks) is 4 hours in total and is LIVE with me, Liz, as your tutor. The classes take place in a Zoom Classroom.
Tuesday August 4th
9:30am - 10:30am
Tuesday August 11th
9:30am - 11.00am
Classes take place in a zoom classroom, you’ll be sent a link once you’ve registered and paid for the class, along with a materials and tools list. This is intended to be a ‘create along with Liz’ class but you can of course, just watch and take notes.
You will need to supply your own materials, but if you’re in New Zealand and would like to purchase a kit (2 pieces of book board, linen thread, four darning needles, paper and templates for binding) you can buy one here.
The class will be recorded and made available on Youtube (privately) only for students who have paid for this class. Please do not share the link with others!

ABOUT COPTC BINDING:
The great thing about coptic binding is it allows the book to open out flat. So if you especially love writing/drawing/making lists & notes then this kind of book is great for this.
STUCK FOR AN IDEA AS TO WHAT YOU CAN USE YOUR BOOK FOR?
A book of dreams/goals for the year
Create to a theme as a special gift (significant birthday/wedding anniversary etc)
A retirement book
