Working with students is always great.

One of the things that did go right for me at the course was that I had brought along a collection of models of book bindings. These are books that have not boards or covers, or have uncovered spines, or have ‘guards’ in every other page (this allows for items to be glued in and for the book to close)

What I noticed was that the group of students that were engaged with the process investigated and worked out what how these structures worked and they shared with each other how the books ‘worked’ and they used their own words and some of them then went on to innovated structures on their own books.

If I was doing a workshop again and that is extremely unlikely. I would do more work with the making of portfolios, envelopes and containers.
