Events at this Venue


Celebrate World Pinhole Day with our free photography workshops.

Pinhole Portraits - Location: Gallery One

Did you know that pinhole cameras have no lens and can be made using anything from a shell to a cardboard box? Come along to this informal drop-in workshop and you can have your portrait taken with a pinhole camera, and learn how these cameras work from local students.

Learn how pinhole cameras are based on a natural phenomenon which can be used to produce stunning images, such as the ones seen in our special exhibition Poetics of Light: Pinhole Photography.

Suitable for all ages.
