Working with two folk stories: Senara from Cornwall and The Selkie from Irish, Scottish, Faroese, and Icelandic folklore, we’ll be exploring myth, archetypes and how to express our responses and experiences through photography.
The workshop is an immersive experience and throughout the day we’ll be listening to stories, dressing up, having fun and creating images alone and with others. We’ll reflect on what we create together.
The aim of the workshop is to generate photographic work that derives from and embodies our responses to ancient tales. A photographic background is not a requirement – we welcome experienced photographers and those new to the medium but you will need to bring a camera or a camera-phone with you. (please do contact us with any further questions about this).
The workshop takes place in the Library at Conway Hall and is led by photographer Grace Gelder and designer-maker & storyteller Imogen Di Sapia. Grace brings her extensive experience as a photographer & educator and Imogen weaves together her expertise in storytelling, craft and a background in fashion & costume.
A note from the venue:
We are committed to promoting inclusive practice at Conway Hall. Due to the constraints of our building, the Library is not currently accessible to wheelchair users or those with limited mobility, we are happy to discuss with you how we can make the contents and materials accessible to you. We carefully monitor which events are held in the Library, and will use your comments to enable us to develop ways to ensure that everyone should be able to attend events in the future.
Registration £55 Earlybird, £75 Standard (plus fees).
