Nag Hammadi Codex Binding – POSTPONED

March 28 - March 29

EAST ANGLIAN REGION

Nag Hammadi Codex Binding 2020 POSTPONED

This is a two day weekend workshop with Michael Burke. The San Francisco  Centre for the Book says this about Nag Hammadi codices:  they take their name from the Egyptian village where, in 1945, a clay pot containing 13 ancient books was discovered. These books are the earliest extant codex bindings ever found—1800 years old—and were found in remarkably good condition. The workshop shows you how to make such a binding.
