Explore the Park boundary through 35mm photography and sound, with artists from Glassball Studio and artist Alison Lloyd. On the 25th September we are holding our final photo and sound walk from a series led by Alison Lloyd, that have followed the boundary as closely as possible.
Glassball Studio invite you to join us, as part of our GUIDEline project, to come on a walk where we relook at the familiar (or the not-so-familiar) contours in the landscape. Artist Alison Lloyd will encourage you to photograph the northwest boundary of the Peak District. Along the way she will share her approach to photographically documenting the landscape.
Our first GUIDEline exhibition venue, with work by those involved to date, ourselves and artists we have collaborated, will be at the Saddleworth Show on the 19th September 2021 10-5pm. This is the start of our touring exhibition that will grow and evolve with new additions, site-specific responses and public contributions. We aim to show this collection of works at other locations along the northwest boundary of the Peak District National Park, so more dates and venues will be announced via www.guideline.org.uk.
The socially distanced walking events have taken place at different locations along the northwest boundary and this will be the last in the series. The walks will not be long in distance, but are aimed to give us the time to explore the boundary in detail and will be no more than 3 hours with regular breaks. Alison will show you how she uses photography (both film and digital) and will support you to take your own pictures with the disposable film cameras provided. Please feel free to also bring along your own digital cameras and/or camera phones.
The number for each walk is limited to 12 participants plus facilitators, so please book your place now so we can safely manage numbers during the events. The walks will be delivered within the current COVID safety guidelines, so please bring your own drinks and snacks. Hand sanitiser will be provided. Due to unpredictable weather, please wear suitable all weather clothing and sensible footwear.
