Learn the Coptic Bookbinding Stitch and Make your own Journal! ‎


In this class you will use the Coptic stitch to make your own journal. Used from as early as the 2nd century AD, Coptic bindings are characterized by one or more sections or signatures, of parchment, papyrus, or paper sewn through their folds, and attached to each other with chain stitch linkings across the spine.

This is a great method for creating books with covers that are individual boards instead of completely wrapped around the entire journal. You are basically binding all the signatures and covers together with a connected stitch that holds everything together tightly, but with super flexibility. The pages will open up completely flat and that’s a big reason why this method is so popular!

Everything you need to make your journal is provided and pre-cut and pre-drilled so you can focus on stitching it all together.

There will be a selection of cigar box covers to chose from and you will go home with a completed journal.

Fee: $60 per person (includes ALL materials)

Think Ink!


Think Ink is a simple interactive event to help you learn about fountain pen inks and to help you keep your fountain pens writing flawlessly. We'll discuss ink history, what your ink is made of, ink flow and just about everything else that pertains to fountain pen ink.
Think of it as a good dose of common sense about the liquid that you
run through your fountain pens.

We will not be discussing any specific ink makers, nor will there be discussion about your favorite ink color.

The presentation runs about 45 minutes and there will be time at the end for Q&A.

Fee:FREE!

Diaries and Journals: Personal History and Everyday Adventures


“I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.”
— Oscar Wilde

Come to a writing-intensive workshop in which we’ll read excerpts from other people’s diaries and write entries in various styles to get started on a personal conversation that can be inspiring, beneficial, and possibly a legacy for the future.

Please pre-register at wardemote@comcast.net to receive a practice journal at the workshop (type “CPS Diary” in the subject line of the message). Please let me know if you have any questions and whether you are an experienced diarist, an occasional journal writer, or thinking about taking up the practice for the first time.
