Storytelling
Course Description
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.
 
DAY 1: INTRODUCTION AND IMMERSION
The course will start with an exciting site visit that will become the starting point for ideas, conversations, narratives and stories. We'll begin responding to our surroundings using drawing, recording and writing to document the space as well as looking at examples of other work exploring place, 
 
DAY 2: EXPLORATION AND IDEAS
Back in the studio, we will continue responding to the site, expanding upon work made on the first day and generating new work focusing on individuals personal perspectives. We'll work through a series of image making workshops to introduce various ways to visualise and organise small narratives and visual themes. 
 
DAY 3: WRITING AND IMAGINATION
Participants will spend the day exploring text and creative writing, responding to images made over the past two days and the location – these might be poetic, factual or nonsensical.
 
DAY 4: COMPILATION AND EDITING
We will start to bring the work made over the past 3 days together to make the publications, using compilation and editing techniques to find meaning and tell stories.
 
DAY 5: CURATING AND PRESENTING
The participants will finalise the publications and install them in the exhibition space, where we will review and reflect upon the course and the work made.
