Half term week has been really busy. I have run four workshops.
It started with Monday where I was at De Montfort University. I provided a day of bookmaking for the Graphics Degree. The day was split into two workshops. In the morning they made Exploding Books and in the afternoon they made Origami Concentina Books.
I don't know why I got myself in such a tizz. For some reason I felt very anxious. Perhaps it was the fact that this was my old University and I had only just left 8 months ago. Anyway it really had a strange affect on me. I didn't go to bed until 3.00 am in the morning. I packed and unpacked my large bag. I checked and re-checked my lesson plan. I made a few more samples to show the group. All totally out of character. I never worry about working with groups or being in strange situations, I usually take it all in my stride.
Everything ran smoothly, I ended up sharing 6 book structures with the groups. I feel everyone came away with plenty of inspiration to take things in their own direction. Hopefully this will stand me in good stead for working with other degree groups.
