2 hour workshop
Is a picture really worth a thousand words? Dip into the world of photo storytelling in this narrative photo books workshop at Merton Abbey Mills.
In this class
In this class, you'll use photographs - either your own or sourced elsewhere - to make a narrative photo book. The book will not necessarily have to follow a linear order, and experimentation will be encouraged. You'll design the narrative first, sequence the photographs, and then bind them together yourself using a simple 'pamphlet stitch' book-binding method.
Now you can
- create unique and meaningful photo books to capture your own stories or to give as gifts
- experiment with new storytelling forms and structures
- get your photos off Instagram and into the real tangible world
Keep / bring
Participants are asked to bring their own photographs to use. You'll leave with a photo book you've created yourself, bound and all: a corporeal story to hold in your hands.
