with Alyssa Salomon
Learn this famous and ancient, non-adhesive (no glue!) sewing method and bind a book. Coptic stitch looks fancy but is great for beginners, but also those looking for a versatile project or interested in historical roots of bookbinding. All materials provided. All levels and students who have taken this workshop before are welcome!
ALYSSA SALOMON has been testing how photography and printmaking collect and remake her favorite parts of the world since receiving a camera on her 8th birthday. Alyssa teaches photography at VCU, but says she became a printmaker at Studio Two Three. She is a compulsive, albeit late rising, bird watcher, a frequent kayaker, and a head-over-heels chicken-keeper.
