Introduction to pinhole photography
Taking and developing photographs would have been a much more physical and hands-on process in Scottish artist E. A. Hornel’s time. For a taste of what this might have been like, join us for a special half day workshop exploring pinhole cameras. This is a back to basics workshop where you will experiment with pinhole cameras made from whisky tubes and card. We will learn about the basics of pinhole photography followed by the magical chemical process of developing black and white prints in the dark-room. No experience is necessary. Please bring long a whisky or a pringles tube with a lid. We will be working outdoors in Princes St Gardens for some of the time. With Artist Kit Martin.
Booking is essential - book online or phone the City Art Centre reception on 0131 529 3993.
Please note that due to the current situation with Covid 19 we may need to run this event on a digital platform rather than in the venue; such a decision may have to be made at short notice. If a switch to an online event is required this will be communicated here and on our Twitter account @Edinculture.
