Paper Crafts: Maker's Guide

Forgot to mention...

I am so honoured  to be part of this great book. I put together a project that responds to a handmade book in the V & A's collection....

University of the Creative Arts, Farnham UCA

It was great to be invited back to the Illustration Department at the University of the Creative Arts, Farnham yesterday.
I ran a workshop for the BA Illustration students
A book structure making session that combined their ideas with technical refinement, measurement and making skills. You could have heard 'a pin drop' they were concentrating so hard....great students!!

We covered the flag book, sewn in the fold book, and then the fold with pocket structure.... kept them very busy and engaged..
