‘The Story of Sunderland’ is a community project that  celebrates the significant relationship that the area’s residents have with Benedict Biscop, who in 674 AD established the monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow at the mouth of the Wear, the very site where the National Glass Centre now stands.  Currently on display on their balcony gallery is a series of hand made books made by a group of adutls new to print and bookbinding.  The work responds to the historical significance of the area and celebrates the contribution made by both Biscop & Bede. 

I worked with this group for 10 weeks and have been absolutely amazed at the depth and clarity of their skills and ideas. If you are in the area, why not check out the work and find out more about Biscop & Bede.

The children I teach have produced some extraordinary bookart. As collaborative journals, altered books and the straight up joy of purposefully making a book from start to finish, they continue to startle and inspire me. I wonder what the ethical considerations of posting pictures of their work would be?

I've been using books and bookish structures for years now in schools and libraries, exhibiting my books in the display area and teaching children about the joy of books in ways where they feel ownership by assisting them in making the content theirs; where the narrative is image or text or blank for future use. there are very few behavioural problems in these classes. it's a pleasure!

Online blog about making books with children here.

Artist Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord states:

Making books with children is a great way to encourage literacy and creativity and build bridges across the generations. I've seen the positive effects firsthand during my twenty years of making books in schools, libraries, and with my family. My primary goal is always to make it easy and fun.

She has also posted a number of book making tutorials on You Tube.
