Photography, photogravure printing and bookmaking in Spain

Group workshops and individual tuition by Tariq Dajani and Eddie Ephraums to facilitate the learning of new skills and the development of existing craft by providing tuition and inspiration, sharing ideas and encouraging discussions.

Group workshops are small with a maximum of 5 participants to allow for individual time with the tutors. The print studio facilities are equipped for polymer photogravure and inkjet printing. The workflow is calibrated to ensure accurate reproduction of tonal values. There is a small indoor still-life/portrait studio equipped with lights, stands, backdrops, and there are numerous locations in the immediate vicinity for outdoor photography. There is a small library of photographic books with quiet areas to read, reflect and relax.

The workshops are held at Casa da Cabaza, a boutique B&B located on the shores of a countryside lake in rural Galicia, north-western Spain. Charmingly renovated from an old stone farmhouse, it has 6 en-suite, private guest rooms, a large lounge/recreational room and lovely gardens. It is a peaceful, creative place, ideal for learning and developing new ideas and work. The food is delicious and healthy, mostly vegetarian, organic and locally sourced. Dietary requests can be accommodated if notified in advance.
