Over this two-day workshop, Leslie will show you how to solder, stamp and embellish book covers, and how to bind them into a treasured book using Coptic binding – a technique that has been used since the second century. At the same time, she will show students how to coax beautiful prints onto paper for your pages using leaves, heat,and water. While we will be dyeing paper during the workshop, Leslie will talk about how the same process can be applied to dyeing fabric, and students will dye a small piece of wool felt to make a bag to hold their book. Some tools will be required for this workshop.
