Make your own picture postcard

Sun 11 Oct | 12pm-3pm, The Rum Story, Whitehaven

Drop-in, no booking required

Explore what Whitehaven means to you in this fun workshop.

Join The Caravan Gallery as they explore and subvert the traditional picture postcard. Be guided through the process of making your very own postcard of the West Coast of Cumbria in this fun drop-in workshop. 

During the workshops you will have an introduction to postcards both old and new, as well as learning about the work of the Caravan Gallery from across the Country. Be inspired to make your own postcard using found imagery, cut up magazines, your own snapshots or even take-away menus. 

You will discuss as a group what photographs could be included on a postcard. What slogans best capture the area you live in? What are you most proud of when showcasing your town?

The Caravan Gallery is a collaboration between artists and photographers Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale to document the reality and surreality of the way we live today. The Caravan Gallery uses colour photography to create thought-provoking images which frequently celebrate overlooked and occasionally bizarre aspects of everyday life.
