Felted Journal with Coptic Binding

September 14, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Series on Thursdays, September 7, 14 & 21

Design felted book covers using a single motif, a repetitive pattern, or an abstract composition.  Book board will be stitched into the felted pockets to create the covers.  Journals will be sewn together using the Coptic stitch binding.  The finished dimensions of the journal is roughly 5” x 7”.  Therefore, the template size is roughly 9” x 11.5”.  Participants might want to outline the motif to be used, keeping it within the latter dimensions.  A simple stencil motif would work well, but avoid tiny cutouts and shapes.  Or just come with an open mind and create a sampler of techniques on your covers.  Open to beginners as well as advanced students. Please note that this is a labor-intensive workshop.

$75 per person
Call 740-363-2548 to register.
