Make a Photobook is a three-day group workshop lead by the Read That Image team and guest tutors. Workshop participants will explore each stage of the bookmaking process and create their own photobook dummies.
During the workshop participants will learn the language of the book form, how to read images, make meaningful decisions and build a book that is rooted in a carefully considered concept. Participants will work collectively and individually on their books with guidance from the RTI team throughout each stage of the bookmaking process.
The workshop format is intense, fast-paced, hands-on and highly productive. Participants will arrive with a collection of images and leave with a hand-crafted dummy book, and the knowledge and understanding required to develop it into a fully-fledged photobook.
The workshop takes place from 10am - 6pm, over the course of three days, across two weeks. Workshop dates for 2019 are:
April 6th, 7th + 14th (SUBMISSION DEADLINE 6PM APRIL 1ST)
June 22nd, 23rd + 29th
August 30th, 31st, Sept 1st + 7th^
