John Blakemore Book-Making and Sequencing Workshops

John Blakemore Book-Making and Sequencing Workshops

It's a pleasure to announce that due to popular demand we will be hosting a series of book-making and sequencing workshops with John Blakemore throughout the year.

John is an inspirational photographer and throughout his extensive career he has always expressed the importance of sequencing and presenting work in handmade books. This series of workshops will demonstrate important skills for any creative photographer and is an opportunity not to be missed!

Day One -  Why Make Books?
In the first session, John will be discussing the importance of the photographic book and sequencing work. We will begin by looking at a selection of beautiful hand made books. John will then be demonstrating how to make several types of unique, hand made book throughout the morning. 
Towards the end of this session John will be reviewing participant's images and assisting them in sequencing and editing their work. Participants are required to bring in a collection of their printed work which they wish to turn into a hand made book.

Participants do not require any equipment for the first session but will be given a list of items they will require to make their books prior to the event.

Day Two - Make your own!
In the second session, John will assist participants in creating a unique, hand made book of their own design. Although you are required to provide some of your own materials for creating you book with, we will be providing some of the more difficult to find materals like book cloth etc.

By the end of day two you will leave with a finished and beautifully crafted book of your own design.
