Saturday, January 27th 10-12:30:  Coptic Book Binding with art instructor Peggy Johnston

The Coptic or Ethiopian binding is one of the earliest binding techniques, and is well over 1000 years old.  This binding is extremely sturdy and has a lovely linked sewing across the exposed spine.

Cost:  $50 includes all materials needed to create your book!  You MUST pre-register and pay for this class before Wednesday, January 25th!  We will close registration by the end of day on January 25th.

Her award winning work is in public and private collections nationally and internationally, including the National Museum for Women in the Arts.
