Recommended for people from 4 to 10 years old

Explore Wakefield and the mystery of analogue photography through a treasure hunt across the city centre.

Equipped with a disposable camera and roll of 35mm film, you and your family will venture into Wakefield to discover hidden gems and photo opportunities whilst having hysterical fun with your loved ones.

With 12 unique locations and 27 shots to spare, you’ll have to decipher the clues in your treasure hunt pack and take the most creative photographs you can on your adventure.

At the end of your adventure, you’ll leave your disposable camera in the trusted hands of our darkroom technicians who will work their magic, processing your film and bringing the photographs to life.

Shortly after the workshop, you’ll be notified by The Art House when you’re able to collect your processed roll of film and a contact sheet, documenting of your photographic journey.
