This 2-day masterclass offers an experimental, hands on workshop for beginners and hobbyists who are interested in creative image making, which is beyond conventional digital photography.

Using a variety of materials, participants will build, create and load their own pinhole cameras with light sensitive paper. From initial designs and concepts, to image making in the camera through to dark-room developing, participants will produce a series of unique crafted images within the grounds of Bellahouston Park. This is a rewarding, time-based process that involves imaginative decision making, planning and patience.

Participants are welcome to bring their own items to recycle and transform into a functional camera, including tins, pots, boxes and cans etc. This is an accessible learning environment welcome to all.

Workshop Aims:
Develop individual and team-working collaborative skills.
To gain an understanding of Analogue Photography.
Understanding light and exposure.
To gain an understanding of darkroom developing.
Considering alternative forms of image making.
