On this fun workshop learn how to construct your very own cameras from a range of simple and cheap objects and materials, make exposures onto photographic paper and process the results in our portable darkroom!  

There are amazing results that can be achieved with both the object itself and the images it can produce. The results are only limited by your imagination!
