“Guy’s experience and knowledge of bookbinding made the course enjoyable, challenging and a brilliant learning week.”

“The best aspect was learning with others, it was well-organised and a good pace.  Guy is an excellent tutor.”

An intensive five-day advanced course of bookbinding structures. The course is designed to be appropriate for people with some previous experience in basic bookbinding. Guy Begbie is an internationally-established book artist and traditionally trained bookbinder who has been teaching book arts in UK Universities since 1995. As a multi-disciplinary artist he makes works using a variety of media that include traditional and experimental approaches to bookbinding.

The book is a viable, visual medium that can provide links and meeting points between many art disciplines such as print, painting and sculpture. It is perhaps the most intimate, easily accessible and portable of all the art forms. In this intensive five-day course both traditional and unorthodox bookbinding structures will be taught.

Guy Begbie is a bookbinder and multi-disciplinary artist. He exhibits his artists' books and delivers book arts workshops and master classes internationally. Guy is the Book Arts Co-ordinator at Herefordshire College of Arts and is the external examiner for BA (Hons) Book Arts & Crafts at London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London

This is an intensive advanced course designed to be appropriate for those with previous bookbinding experience.

Limited to 10 participants.
