Guy Begbie -Guest lecturer and Book Making Workshop for Level 6

Guy came on Thursday and gave a lecture to our level 6 students. He then started a workshop where the students made a hard back concertina foundation structure. This could then accommodate drop down pages and sculptural pages that could be pulled out and up to allow for free standing paper engineered 3D elements, tactile multi faceted page surfaces, cutaway apertures and contoured page edges. The initial page structuring allows for additional pages to be added using pamphlet stitch or PVA pasting methods.

On Friday the students made a box structure that when closed, looked like a book and is able to be stored upright on a book shelf. It has a base and lid which are joined with a book type spine. This was made to enable the book to be enclosed within the box structure.
