Sunday 29th April 2012 11am to 2pm
Photographers Collective North Staffs have made a giant walk-in camera obscura at Burslem School of Art. It is about 8000 cubic feet and open for one day only!
Watch images unfold on the walls around you as the world goes by. This unique experience shows how images are formed inside cameras. Many famous artists created paintings this way in the past.
Members of the Collective will be there to explain how the camera obscura and pinhole photography work.
Pinhole photography allows you to make a photograph that requires only a light-tight container (box, can,...) with a tiny hole in one side (as a camera) and any photosensitive surface in it. You can adapt an existing camera, or make the camera yourself.
Bring a box or tin with lid and we will show you how to make your own camera obscura or pinhole camera to take home with you.
We will help you take pinhole photographs and develop them for you. They will be shown in our next exhibition at Burslem School of Art. We will just charge £1 a photo, to cover the costs of materials.
If you have an SLR camera body (digital or film) and a spare body cap, bring them along and we can help you can turn your camera into a pinhole camera.
Refreshments and light lunch will be available.
Only 20 places are available on the workshop. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07818 603043 to book your place
World Pinhole Photography Day is an international event created to promote and celebrate the art of pinhole photography. http://www.pinholeday.org/participate/
