Use a pin-hole camera to take retro pictures on photographic paper and develop them in our dark room.
This workshop is designed for students between the ages of 11 and 16 years old, and lasts for around four hours including a 30 – 40 minute break for lunch (not provided).
The maximum group size is 24. Actual group sizes depend on age and circumstance, for more info contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this workshop students will look at how the first cameras worked and investigate the optics behind pinhole photography, exploring the links between this and modern digital image capture. They will investigate how photographic images are formed, learn about the chemical developing processes and discover how to make their own Pinhole camera. Lots of hands on activities are included such as creating a photogram and of course getting to capture and develop their own photos using a pinhole camera.
