The creation of pinhole cameras is a fundamental part of the historical journey of photography and its invention.

During this one-day workshop we will be looking at the creation of the pinholecamera and getting creative with not only the making of your own pinhole camera but also processing and printing your own images from them.

The workshop starts with a morning of making your own coffee can pinhole camera from scratch. Considering the basic workings of a camera and how these principles can be related to your own invention. Once our cameras are complete, we will be spending the afternoon using the cameras to experiment with image creation and processing your photographs in our mini darkrooms.

From camera creation to image printing, this workshop covers this journey in a fun and experimental process that allows the participant to learn more about these traditional processes in a fun and experimental way.

No prior photographic experience is needed.
