This course offers an experimental, hands-on workshop for young people which is beyond conventional digital photography.

Using a variety of materials, kids will build, create and load their own pinhole cameras with light sensitive paper to make intriguing analogue photographs – all by hand! From initial designs and concepts, to image making in the camera, through to dark room developing, we will produce a series of unique crafted images within the grounds of Bellahouston Park. This is a fun and rewarding, time-based process that involves imaginative decision making, planning and creative spirit!

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.

Develop individual and team-working collaborative skills.
To gain an understanding of Analogue Photography.
