If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in VIC. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will either postpone your booking, or refund you.

Join Michelle from Paperazzi Design Studio and learn to handmake beautiful books! 

Created by the ancient Egyptians, the Coptic style of binding is a timeless way to create a book with a visible spine stitch and a hardback cover. Learn the technique behind the trademark Coptic spine stitch which resembles a chain stitch as used in embroidery and create a book that has each page opening perfectly flat. 

Coptic books are ideal for visual diaries, photo albums, digital media portfolios and a host of other applications – perfect for gifts!

No experience necessary and all materials and light refreshments will be provided! 

Come along and have fun creating your very own handmade Coptic spine book to take home. 

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.
