Course Introduction

Students: develop a project from proposal to final exhibition; research content, materials and technical skills, then produce written and practical work exploring a subject in relationship to contemporary practice; have support and supervision throughout the course from specialist academic staff in workshops, individual tutorials, seminars and lectures. Staff and student'led seminars help promote debate, and work'in'progress sessions that allow for supportive critique. Students: develop research skills, professional practice and an understanding of the wider context of book arts as an area of fine art and design practice; have a shared lecture programme across the visual arts courses that draw upon the richness of research across Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges; get involved in artists book fairs and visit special collections in London such as the Tate, John Latham’s Flat Time House and the National Art Library at the V and A Museum. Students also have the chance to explore the expanded book in a display or installation by showing their work in public exhibitions.
