This Coptic book course shows you how to make this book design from scratch with minimal tools. The exposed binding allows your book to open flat.
The Secret Belgian Binding is a great follow on to the Coptic course and uses many of the same techniques, but takes it further by giving you a fabulous flexible cover and spine.
It seemed apt to put these two bindings together to give you lots of ideas for your book projects.

Yvette Ja has been running bookbinding, origami and sculpture workshops for 12+ years and brings her Mixed Korean/UK heritage to her work, making it the best of both worlds! I learned how to bind books at a Victorian bindery at The Literary and Philosophical Society and have done extensive research in Artist's Books in my own practise. In 2011 I set up Book Apothecary: The Travelling Museum of Artist's Books which explored traditional and digital books through touring exhibitions. We worked with 48 artists and more than 2000 readers bringing bookbinding, sculpture, printmaking and textile books to new audiences. This project was funded by The Cultural Olympiad, National Lottery, Arts Council England and local councils.
I look forward to welcoming you onto this workshop.
Please note that for all online workshops, tickets are non refundable.
