Clever Coptic Bookbinding with Rose Rigley

Bulmba-ja Arts Centre

Four books standing upright with the spine facing forward. Each book uses a different binding style.

In this workshop, Cairns-based contemporary artist and arts educator Rose Rigley will teach the fundamentals of bookbinding. Participants (14yrs+) will be guided to create an A5 hand-made, open-bound book using the Coptic stitch binding method. Each participant will craft one unique book, learning how to create pages, make covers, layout signatures, and techniques for binding.

No experience necessary.
