Explore photography as a medium through which we can create and share narratives with artist Amak Mahmoodian. This workshop aims to develop ways of expression, including thinking, writing, composing and taking photographs.



Amak Mahmoodian is an artist born in Shiraz and lives in Bristol, UK. In 2015, she completed a practice based doctorate in photography at the University of South Wales, having previously studied at the Art University of Tehran. The artist’s work questions Western notions of identity, expressing personal stories that pertain to wider social issues which draws on her experiences in the Middle East, Asia and the West. Her previous project, Shenasnameh, has been widely exhibited internationally and the accompanying artist photo book won many awards and critical acclaim in publications as diverse as Time magazine, Lens culture and Foam magazine.


These monthly activity sessions are led by artists and take place in the Spike Island Café. Visitors of all ages and abilities can try out new techniques and approaches to making art, from drawing and painting to collage, sculpture and animation and are invited to drop in any time during the session.
