    Don’t have 951 square feet of mess-making and drying space in your house? No? Then, this workshop is just for you!

    This two-day workshop will focus on demonstrating professional bookbinding techniques and skill-building to allow participants to better customize their books. And keep the mess in the bindery where it belongs!

    We will explore the following techniques:

    • ·       Prepare your own natural fibre cloths to use as book covering materials
    • ·       Laminate Paper and Line boards to get just the right cover board (no warping!)
    • ·       Tone papers (including Tyvek) and Thread for exposed sewings
    • ·       Prepare Silk for use as bookcloth

    Bring your apron and your own materials to prepare a stash of samples over two days. The instructor will reach out to recommend materials and papers that will be most successful, so sign up early!

    Coptic & Stab Bindings: Exposing the Possibilities

    Instructor: Carolyn Eady

    Location: CBBAG Bindery (180 Shaw St, Toronto)

    Duration: 2 days, Saturday-Sunday, Sept 15-16

    Hours: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

    Course fee: $ 210 members/$ 270 non-members

    Materials fee: $35 payable to the instructor

    Prerequisite: None


    In this 2-day class for advanced beginners/those with some bookbinding experience, we’ll explore contemporary stab bindings, and a variation of the 2-needle Coptic stitch. 

    Two styles of hard covers will be taught: regular Coptic covers, and a hinged style cover. We’ll go over the advantages of both and put them into practice with the main projects; a hardcover contemporary stab binding, and a hard cover 2-needle Coptic binding with fancy cover stitching.  


    This class is an exploration of non-adhesive, exposed spine bindings, with a focus on creating variations of the mainstream versions of these bindings, so previous exposure to sewing a Coptic binding or a stab binding is useful.  


    *If you require glasses to see small details up close, make sure to bring them!
