Every Picture Tells a Story: Dudley Trade School


We will be teaching a class on how to preserve your personal photos as part of the Spring programme for Dudley Trade School.

'Every Picture Tells a Story: Preserve your Personal Photos

Venue: gather, 65, High Street, Dudley DY1 1PY (see map)

Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Trade School is great way of sharing skills and talents. Anyone can teach something they are skilled at, or passionate about. Participants pay for classes with a barter item (like food, supplies, or advice) that the teacher requests.

Do you have photographs and memories of life in the Black Country that you think should be recorded and treasured for future generations?  Learn how to digitise your photos, slides or negatives for others to enjoy.  If you don't have photos, please feel free to bring an item which provokes a memory for you that you could talk about.

Bring one of the following:
A photo from your personal collection (we will give it you straight back!) and the story behind it
An offer to teach a Trade School class yourself

Untold Stories: Writing and photography collections

Writer and poet Mandy Ross will lead a workshop that explores different ways to capture untold stories around our photographs and collections.

In the workshop we will explore and interpret our photographs with questions such as: what does the collection mean to the person who gathered it? How can we tell a story that spans several photographs, or an entire collection? How can we work with gaps, absences and the unknown details?

Bring your own photos, or you can use some of ours.

Booking through Eventbrite is essential.  Places are free, but limited to 15 participants.
