Focus on the Foundry

The LBT has an exciting opportunity for a specialist architectural photographer

The Loughborough Bellfoundry Trust is seeking a specialist architectural photographer who will be appointed on a consultancy basis to design and implement a series of photography workshops and engagement activities as part of its National Lottery Heritage Fund project “Taylor’s: Saving the Last Major Bellfoundry in Britain”.

The successful bidder will lead a series of workshops to document the restoration of the bellfoundry, capturing the bellfoundry in its present condition and documenting changes and progress until the refurbishment is complete. Workshops should help to develop the skills of the people who volunteer to take part, increase interest in the Lottery project as a whole and ensure that the restoration of the bellfoundry is documented for future generations.

We envision that four workshops will be held annually across a 3-year period, totalling 12 workshops. The workshops will consist of a tutorial followed by a practical session, with the Loughborough Bellfoundry as the subject.

The procurement timetable for this opportunity is as follows:
