After leading a very successful basic bookmaking class at Create Space, Claudia Fuller is now going to teach a more involved technique called Coptic Binding. Using this method developed in Egypt in the 2nd century AD, you can make exquisite journals for water color, writing, scrapbooking and other purposes. Coptic Books make wonderful personal journals and memorable gifts. You do not need to have attended Claudia's previous class or have any experience with book making to learn this artful technique. Claudia teaches with a clarity and enthusiasm that makes learning new skills very easy. Due to the process required, this class will take place in two 3-hour sessions.
Claudia Fuller is a mixed media artist who has always enjoyed creating artful items. Ten years ago, she made her first book and hasn’t stopped since. She makes books for gifts and she makes books to fill with her art making. She uses watercolor papers, book board and book cloth for some journals and recycled boxes and cardboard for others. Filling books with painting, calligraphy, quotes and memorys is how she documents her life.
