Forstall Nag Hammadi Workshop










Here are the students from my workshop at Forstalls today comparing
their contemporary Nag Hammadi books in the middle of the class. It went well
and we had a great time. I will be giving another workshop in June at Forstall. If
you are interested you should give them a ring. 205.870.0480

Nag Hammadi

DOUG BAULOS: Book Binding Workshop

Modern Re-Inventions of Historic Binding-The Nag Hammadi

The Nag Hammadi codices are the earliest surviving books in codex form with their covers intact. They were found in Egypt and are a collection of Gnostic writings from the 4th century. Each of the eleven surviving codices has a similar structure, but all have subtle and beautiful unique details. All students will complete a book based on the Nag Hammadi codex style. Students are encourage to bring supplies that reveal their aesthetic choices. Bring your bone folder, sewing needles, xacto, ruler, waxed thread, and your choice of decorative papers or other objects you might want to work with.
