There is something entirely fascinating about pinhole and homemade cameras. From the very first Camera Obscura’s to the beautifully crafted pinhole cameras of today, lens-free analogue picture-making has remained a magical way to make photographs. On this fun 2 day workshop learn how to construct your very own cameras from a range of simple and cheap objects and explore the amazing results that can be achieved with both the object itself and the images it can produce.
You will use your homemade cameras to make a range of images and then process and develop them in out portable darkroom! The results are only limited by your imagination! Students will be able to take their creations home with them.
