The Wakefield Photowalk

The Art House

Date

Sat 05 Feb 2022 - Sat 05 Feb 2022

Time

10:00 - 13:00

Price

£35.00

During the workshop, you will experience a guided approach to making photographs and responding (photographically) to your own locality, Wakefield.


The day will begin at 10am with a group meet up at The Art House, where you will have the opportunity to hear from your tutor about their practice and their creative process. You will spend the first hour gaining inspiration from The Art House’s growing photobook library, in conversation with your tutor, before beginning the photowalk at 11am.


In this workshop, we’ll be celebrating the accessibility of photography today and acting on those ‘I’ve got to take a photo of that!’ moments. Bring along your own digital or analogue camera, or mobile phone – whatever lens you’re working with, this workshop is the one for you.


During the photowalk, you will have the opportunity to seek technical and creative guidance from your tutor as we take a gentle walk around city centre space. We’ll then finish the day off with a 15 minute regroup at The Art House, where we can reflect as a group on the photographs we made.


You will leave this workshop having gained a more enriched outlook on the act of making photographs, also having made a series of new photos yourself.
