Redeye's Snapshots are a series of skill sharing workshops, offering quick insights into artists’ work through their use of creative processes and techniques.
This introduction to self publishing will talk through some of the different approaches to making your own edition of photobooks. Starting with the project as the focus, this talk will cover the basics of planning, designing, funding and producing your publication.
If this event inspires you to start making your own handmade books you can sign up for our Snapshot: Bookbinding event the following evening.
