Exploring Mellis Common and the World of Roger Deakin
Mellis and surrounding landscape, Suffolk, 29 -31 May, 2012
This private three day workshop in rural Suffolk was shaped to follow a request by two American visitors interested in exploring the landscape around the village of Mellis as featured in the books of the late nature writer Roger Deakin. The workshop included walking the traditional grazing common in Mellis and the routes of the old droving paths and how to recognise the changes that have occured in this landscape and how to respond to this with photographs. Other surrounding villages were also visited in Suffolk. The workshop began with a visit to a traditional agrarian farm in the Norfolk fens.

Exploring Place with a Camera
A weekend photography workshop with Justin Partyka and Bee Farrell
Friday 10 December (6.30pm) - Sunday 12 December 2010
7 Hatton Street, London, NW8 8PL
This workshop is intended for architects and city / master planners who are interested in the role of photography within their profession, or who enjoy it as a hobby. The weekend will be about using photography as a means to explore and document place and will provide an opportunity to develop photographic skills in a creative and supportive environment. Participants will work on individual projects, which when brought together will present a collective vision of place.
Using the architectural offices of Terry Farrell and Partners as a base, the exploration of place will be the Edgware Road and its environs. This is a dynamic and diverse area with a strong Middle Eastern presence, busy Church Street Market and the more serene areas of Little Venice and the Regents Canal.
Requirements: a digital camera (a point and shoot is perfectly ok), access to a computer to download the photographs, and a memory stick.
One free place is being offered to a BA or MA student of architecture or master planning studying in London. To apply please describe why you would like to do this workshop and what you hope to achieve from it – 250 words max.
Cost: £160 - including weekend breakfasts, Friday appetisers and Sunday tea and cake.
12 participants maximum (participants from Justin’s previous workshops may apply)
