Find out more about the Alubind project
This pack includes teacher's notes, student worksheets and classroom video.
The main theory behind this project is the Informalist design style. What made it successful in the mid 80's? The classroom video and teacher's notes cover this information and provide an excellent catalyst for the design process. The making process is also fully explained as well as graphic techniques that will enhance the design process.

4mm pop rivets for the Alubind project and the Photon Factor project. Box of 1000.
Use these rivets to join the D-Clip to the back piece of the Alubind. The larger head holds onto the tricky polyproplylene in the Photon Factor project.
Front aluminium panel for the alubind project.
This piece needs no floding, but as the front piece provides the main opportunity for design. It's not a bad idea to complete the design work on the piece after drilling the 4 holes, but prior to joining. This makes it easier to work with.
Back aluminium panel for the alubind project comes with a protective sheet on one side.
Ready to use. Edges will need smoothing with wet and dry paper. mark out the fold line with a scribe and a steel rule. It turns out that the average steel rule is the exact width of the spine of the alubind so you can simply hold the steel rule along one long edge and scribe the fold line along it. No need for any measurement.
Purchase these pre-cut hinges specifically for the Alubind project.
They are cut shorter than the length of the aluminium front and back pieces so that there is some room for error.
Packet of A5 paper.
Once students have completed their Alubind, they will want to insert some A5 paper to try it out. It's the finishing touch that makes it a 'real' product, one that they will want to take home and use.
Purchase this in a bulk roll and then cut to any size you need.
This is a nickel plated steel hinge with 4mm holes.
Attaches to the inside back of the Alubind to hold the paper in place
4mm pop rivets for general use.
Specifically for the Alubind project and the Photon Factor project. Ideally drill a 4.1mm hole for these rivets adn remember to de-burr any holes drilled into aluminium.
