This week-long course will lead participants through research, drawing explorations and creative writing, resulting in the curation of their own publication inspired by a local destination. This place will be the starting point for investigations into location, people and ideas – participants will be encouraged to explore what intrigues them. We will look at image making, drawing and writing as ways to research, challenging participants to break away from more traditional ways of looking and learning. In the latter part of the week we will consider different ways to edit and curate the work into individual publications using practical skills like bookbinding. The course is accessible to creatives at any skill level who are open to experimenting. It is suited to anyone curious about combining words and image, looking to expand their ways of working or interested in making books. It will encourage participants to adopt new ways of investigating in their practice and provide a space to play.
