Segment 1: Dublin Maker 2016
On the 23rd of July, Dublin Maker held their 5th event in Merrion square. Its a day long event showcasing creations from around ireland. Their is a strong focus on being able to build it yourself. Not just admire from a distance. So what kind of things were on show? I had a look around and talked to some stall makers to give you a favour of what was there.
Segment 2: Read That Image's Make a Photobook workshop
As apart of the PhotoIreland festival, image collective Read That Image, ran a make your own photobook workshop. From conception to binding, the workshop took place over 3 days from the 22nd of July to the 24th. I checked out the workshop and looked at what books were being made and send to print and how it was all coming along.
