This is a book binding course led by tutor Guy Begbie concentrating on variations of pamphlet and concertina book structures in both hardback and softback bindings.

Explore your potential

Fully explore the potential of the pamphlet and concertina book structures using printed page content on this five day course. By the end of the week you will produce a set of 8 books with printed content, formally presented in a bespoke presentation pop-up (Wehmais) box.

The first day of the course will be spent making additive monotype prints using platen printing presses and direct methods of surface printing. A theme of 'The Architectural' will provide a starting point subject focus for the printed book content material.

The remaining four days of the course will be spent on constructing and binding the sets of books from the printed material and making the bespoke presentation pop-up (Wehmais) box, which elevates to display the books when opened.

The pamphlet book structures will be made to include both one and two section sewing, with emphasis on innovative and extending page configurations. Variations in blank paper stock and appropriated library discard material will be used for the printing and subsequent book making. A range of book cover construction will be encouraged. This will include both hard and softback, Dos-a-Dos and French Door cover configurations.

The course price includes all catering and materials.
