Coptic bookbinding is on my list of things to do in 2012 and I am so glad to have the chance to check it off! I am looking forward to a class on kettle binding as I missed the last run. Okay so back to the class. Joey (another SBM-er) joined me. I was really nice to be able to get to know friends on facebook in real life. Other SBM-ers who were there includes Jesslyn and Stephanie.
Our teacher, CY, came from KL just to teach us. His humour brings about a different atmosphere and we all enjoyed the process of bookbinding even though it was a bit of a challenge initially. I definitely struggled with the first 2 sets of papers but got the hang of it after I reached the third set. The feeling of exhilaration to finally complete a book of my own was great. I was telling Ruth, owner of The Little Happy Shop, that it was really a miracle to complete it! haha!
Join the next available class if you're keen. (: Support handmade!
