We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Said to have been originated in Egypt in the 2nd century, the Coptic stitch has been used in bookbinding for almost 2,000 years. Now is your chance to keep the tradition alive!

    Might you be interested in halving the price for upper elementary students interested in this art form? Please contact me at pepper@umn.edu if that’s something that could ever work.
