The workshop is mainly aimed at children aged 9 and up, but interested adults are also very welcome to book a place. Participants will construct a pinhole camera using little more than a soft drink can, tape, paper, a pin and kitchen foil. Once the cameras have been made, participants will to try them out immediately to take photographs of the surrounding area. We will be using so called ‘direct positive paper’ - from the participants’ point of view, this just means that the positive image is accessible almost immediately, rather than going through the longer negative or positive process of most traditional photographic materials. The Chapel Gallery is equipped with a traditional black and white darkroom. The organisers will process photographs for participants unfortunately, for health and safety reasons, we are unable to expose the general public to photographic chemicals. Processed prints will be displayed in a mini-exhibition of participants’ work over the course of the day.
