Beginning March 11th, an artbook creation atelier will be held at TUMO Studios under the leadership of Tomasz Laczny. Tomasz, who is a visual artist, researcher, storyteller, bookmaker, and educator, will be traveling from London to lead this atelier. His recent artbooks encompass a retrospective exploration of family history and archives.
During this atelier, participants will collaborate with Tomasz to delve into the art of storytelling and craft their own books. Do not worry if you do not have a story in mind; assistance will be provided.
The atelier will unfold in two stages. The first stage caters to those without a predefined story. TUMO Studios’ team will guide you through a week-long process to develop your narrative. Following this, all participants will spend two weeks with Tomasz, focusing on design principles, selection of the visuals, editing and layout design. Next, students will transition to the physical creation of their books, involving binding exercises, cover design, and printing.
This atelier welcomes students engaged in photography, drawing, design, graphic arts, storytelling and anyone intrigued by the idea of translating their story into book form.
