I just finished my first Coptic Bound Journal. The instructions were clear, and Amy provided both written printouts and video lessons, so whatever your learning style, it’s a fun workshop! I was so happy with my final product! I highly recommend this class!
I’m Amy Maricle, an art therapist turned art facilitator who adores helping artists make more meaningful, joy-filled art. We are going to explore, experiment, and play with these high flow paints and help you make them a part of your beautiful art practice.
I’ve designed this class so that any and everyone can make their own beautiful hand sewn journal.
You will need:
Bone folder – for neatly folding paper for book signatures, 6 inches pointed at one end
Awl – for piercing holes in covers and signatures
Scissors – for cutting thread and paper for covers
Pencil – for marking holes
Binder clips – for holding covers and signatures together when marking
Bookbinding Needle – Size 20
Linen waxed thread
Chip board for covers
Watercolor paper – for signatures of book
Paper or cloth – for covers
Parchment or wax paper – for putting between
your covers and some heavy books for drying
Paper cutter (Or you can use a ruler and an
Xacto knife) – for cutting all papers to size
Ruler – I have a small 6 inch ruler that I find handy for the small books
Optional: Decorative Paper or cloth for inside
covers, or your art (or use same as cover)
Optional: I also use a quilting ruler simply because I am not the most exact person, and I find the clear grid very helpful for being more precise.
Because of the nature of digital products, I cannot offer refunds, regardless of the circumstances. Please look over the classes carefully and reach out if you still have questions – I’m happy to help!
You can access your class materials via your Dashboard on my site. Your class consists of a nearly hour-long instructional video, and downloadable PDF guide. Both take you step-by-step through the process. My classes with videos and PDFs are all “lifetime access.” As long as I have a website, you have access to the class. YAY!
