Collaborative Photobook Workshop with Read That Image
11am – 4pm, Saturday 26 October
No. of participants: maximum 9*
*Please note there is a minimum of 4 participants required to run the workshop.
Join the RTI team for this one day collaborative photobook-making workshop inspired by Tommy Weir’s forthcoming exhibition ‘Cillín’ at the RHA Gallery. We are pleased to invite artists and photographers to submit black and white images relating to the main themes of the exhibition: death, ritual, history and the Irish landscape.
Participants will be given a brief introduction to each stage of the bookmaking process and will collectively build and create their own hand-crafted photobooks. Participants will work in groups with a collective pool of images to create new narratives and explore the various possibilities of visual storytelling.
The emphasis will be on editing, sequencing and the process of building relationships between images. While there will be some limitations in place (tight timeframe, book size, binding) experimentation is highly encouraged. This one day workshop will be fast-paced and hands on, and follow a DIY approach to photobook making.
How to submit:
Please submit images from a series of your own photographic work inspired by the work of Tommy Weir and the main themes of the exhibition. Family photos, found photos, images sourced from the internet under creative commons are also welcome. Feel free to submit colour photographs however please note these will be converted to black and white for the purpose of the workshop.
