The workshop is suited to complete beginners, as well as more experienced photographers.
First you will make your own camera out of a box or tin, then loading our converted vessels with black and white photographic paper you will learn how to take pinhole images in the surrounding Kingshill gardens.
Abi will teach you how to develop your negatives under red safelight conditions in a simple pop up darkroom.
This is a hands on, dynamic workshop where you will learn how light travels through the pinhole to create an image, exposure times needed to create a successful pinhole photograph and simple darkroom techniques.
This is a magical and experimental day supported by your tutor to get the most out of your pinhole camera and creative photography.
Approx £5 - £10 cash payable to the tutor on the day for materials.
