As photography educators, Elizabeth (Betsy) Doak and Gisela Torres have led photography workshops at The National Portrait Gallery, The Photographer’s Gallery, The Barbican, The V&A and The Wallace Collection.

Wed 25 Sep 2024

Participants will be invited to share a treasured personal photograph and to tell the story behind it, from this beginning we will work to expand that story, encouraging imaginative dreamlike ideas into a series of images that can be presented as a zig zag book ‘zine’ or a collage. The work will be made within the inspiring setting of Farleys garden with technical and creative guidance from Elizabeth and Gisela.

Gisela lives in London and has a BFA in Film and Video (School of Visual Arts, NYC) and an MA in Photography Arts (University of Westminster). She is an educator and multidisciplinary artist making work to reimagine narratives of under-represented histories, body politics and mourning.

Elizabeth lives in Eastbourne and has a BA Hons Degree and MA in photographic studies. She is an educator working with local communities on projects centred around place, memory and belonging. Her own work is formed from research, with a layered historical and literary context as a basis for re telling stories within a variety of photographic medium.
