AvantPop Bookstore and the Office of Collecting and Design team up for an afternoon of flatlay photographs, ice cold drinks and plenty of good conversation. The Office of Collecting and Design is known for their photographs, specifically a type of image called a flatlay: a careful arrangement of objects photographed from directly above.
During this workshop, Jessica, the museum’s curator, will bring a giant box of treasure from the Office of Collecting & Design’s collections for visitors to sort through (included are objects both rare and common, precious and forgotten).
After selecting an array of objects that appeal to them, visitors are coached through the arrangement of a flatlay with our help. The flatlays are then photographed by Jessica and each creator walks away with a tiny, instant film print.
(1 drink and 1 film print included in ticket price. Additional flatlays are encouraged, but are $2 per print.)
