Donegal County Museum Photography Workshop

Donegal County Museum Photography Workshop

Looking after your precious family photographs




Donegal County Museum are offering a free hands-on photography archiving workshop led by Gallery of Photography curators next Friday 30 September. 



Working with Donegal County Museum, this hands-on photography archiving workshop will be led by Gallery of Photography curators, who will guide you through the fundamentals of preserving your family album; from caring for your photographs, negatives, and slides, safe storage and display options; digitising & archiving your collection, to options available for restoring & repairing damaged photographs.



The workshop will also discuss the value of preserving our rich photographic heritage using images from the famous Derry photographer James Glass as an example of the importance of this work. The discussion will also look at the ongoing Photo Album of Ireland project organised in partnership with Donegal County Museum and Gallery of Photography which is researching the diverse cross border history of Ireland through the family album.



What participants need to bring

Your personal photographic collection: photo albums, photographic prints, negatives, slides, digital files. Please bring along photographs that you would like us to scan at high resolution to give you maximum quality to reprint or enlarge. If any of your photographs are damaged, we will be able to show you how to fix them with post production software. All photographs are returned.



The Gallery of Photography is Ireland’s leading photography centre and it is located in Dublin’s cultural and creative quarter, Temple Bar. The Gallery is a not for profit organisation.



Two workshops will be held, one at 11am and one at 2pm and each workshop will last approximately 1.5 hours with a maximum of 12 participants per workshop.  Although the workshops are free, booking is essential.
