The Photocopy Club Workshop comes to Cheltenham.
18th June 2019
As part of The Cheltenham Festival Fortnight, Senior Lecturer Matthew Murray arranged for a day of zine making with The Photocopy Club. The day started with a talk from Matt Martin from The Photocopy Club about the history of zine making and how that relates to photographers working today and examples of publishers. The Photocopy Club brought in their zine archive for participants to look through.
All participants shot work with either a camera or camera phone, they then worked through an edit to curate their own individual zine. The participants were then taught Japanese book binding.
