The artist’s book spine can serve as a beautiful loom. In this 2-day workshop, we will learn how.
Day one: The Coptic stitch has been used since the Middle Ages to bind a book that can lay flat when open. Mastering it is necessary for day 2. Attendees can expect to complete at least 3 Coptic stitch books from tools and materials provided.
Day two:
Adding to the Coptic stitch, we will create the warp of a mini loom up and down the book spine, then weave threads crosswise to form the woof. The effect is beautiful, strong, and rarely seen. Attendees can expect to complete 1-2 woven spine books on day 2.

everything you will need for both days such as art papers, book-binding tools (yours to keep) adhesives, waxed linen, embellishments and more.
