Jump into two days of exploring cameraless photography in our darkroom!

When we think of photographs, we think of portraits of family members, friends, and maybe landscapes but in this exciting two-day course, we’ll look at how limitless photography can really be.

We’ll be using the theme lost and found to discover and repurpose found objects and plant life from our Urban Orchard, seeing how the light passes through them. With this theme in mind, we’ll have two days of experimenting under the red light in the darkroom – collaging and making new discoveries, seeing how far we can push the boundaries of cameraless photography.

At the end of the course, we’ll pin our cameraless photographs up in the learning space, creating our own pop-up exhibition!
