Jamestown Oaks coptic book workshop

May 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$17.50 – $75.00

We love trees and we love our city!

Join us to celebrate Arbor Day by making a unique commemorative book. Designed by our resident book and paper lover, Deb Eck, these books will feature tree cookies taken from the Third Street oak trees and some decorative papers made by Deb in her studio from plants collected on Jamestown’s Riverwalk.

Learn how to make a traditional, elegant Coptic sewn binding similar to ones used in the Copt Monasteries of Ethiopia around the 4th century while creating  a special tribute to the glorious cathedral oaks.

The class is suitable for complete beginners with no previous binding experience and will cover the basics of creating a book, including finding paper grain, folding papers accurately, selecting appropriate threads, marking and punching the holes for sewing, and assembling the book.

This is a VERY limited seating class.

Deb will donate $10 per student to Jamestown’s Urban Forestry Fund in honor of the trees.
