Get in touch to book your space before offer ends! We look forward to hearing about your events and workshops.


Make a pinhole photograph selfie and solargraph camera

What you will make:
In this two hour workshop you will make a pinhole camera and use it to create an ‘Awfullogramme selfie’. A ‘self-portrait technique invented by Justin, creating a selfie undistorted by lenses! We will then adapt the camera so you leave with a camera which can take a solargraph image of the sun crossing the sky over 5 months.

Description of activities:
The pinhole camera will be made from found materials and loaded with light sensitive paper. After exposing the paper, you will develop the image in darkroom chemistry lit by a red light enabling the participant to magically view the image appearing. After viewing the image in positive, you will adapt your camera to enable it to be installed at home to make a 5 month image of the sun.

Skill level:
The workshop will be fine for people with no experience in photography before, although all children below 16 need to be accompanied by an adult. Minimum age for the workshop is 8 years old.

£20 per person, maximum of 15 per group.
