Inspired by students

I am continally inspired by the creativity of my students!
Previously, by the creative output in my Modern Foreign Languages lessons - creative writing, storytelling, drama productions.....
At present, I am amazed by the wonderful Artists' Books which my students make!  With specialist design and book-binding input from me and free reign to create their own book forms using this knowledge, the variety of structures is awe inspiring. My students range from 6 years to 66 years and all are wildly creative within the safe and encouraging sessions.
Here are a few Artist's books by my school students:

by year 8 pupil
by year 13 A2 Visual Arts student
by year 13 A2 Graphics student
by a year 9 pupil

I am planning my next bookbinding course for adults as I write...
