Coptic Binding Workshop – Manila and General Santos

workshop

I have the dates finally for the workshops! I would have wanted to hold the Manila workshop in the weekend, but that is not possible due to time constraints, I’m only there for a very short holiday. (I am hoping this won’t be the last time though, and be able to arrange the dates much better the next time!)

If you’re interested in attending, please fill in and submit contact form below. I will send a paypal invoice and confirm your place via email, as well as venue details. If you prefer another payment option, please let me know.

There is a welcome pack for all participants with materials to make your own coptic-bound journal. For the first 5 to book their places, there’s an additional  special package from me. Watch the blog for photos soon. And lastly, please note deadline of booking is on the 31st of May. I will need the final number of participants to confirm my bookings for the venue. Again, many many thanks!

Looking forward to meet with you for an afternoon of bookbinding!
