Have you ever wondered how cameras work? Join us for the pinhole camera workshop to learn about the magic of light and make your very own camera from scratch.

Participants will be guided through the process of constructing a simple pinhole camera from recycled materials, ready to take home and create a solargraph – a long exposure recording the sun’s movement across the sky.

This is a wonderful hands-on opportunity to experience the magic of analogue photography.

> The workshop is suitable for those aged 6 years and up.

WHEN > Saturday 6 April 2024
TIME > 1PM to 3PM
