Pinhole Camera-Making Workshop with Stephanie Slate

December 13, 2015
12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Gallery 105 at the Crane Arts Building

Join us for a four-hour primer on getting started with pinhole photography! We’ll start by discussing the history and technical aspects of the art form. Then, you’ll learn how to construct and use your own camera and how to process paper negatives. We’ll also introduce you to solargraphy, a relatively new and very exciting spin on pinhole photography that will allow you to use your pinhole camera without access to photographic chemistry.

This will be a hands-on workshop with an emphasis on photographing and experimentation. Oatmeal containers will be provided for turning into cameras, but you are also encouraged to bring in found objects such as shoe boxes, soda cans, cigar boxes, etc. Anything that can be made light tight can be turned into a camera!

Level: This workshop is suitable for anyone, regardless of prior photographic experience.

Price: Free, with a $10 materials fee

Space is limited, so reserve your seat today!

MAKING CONTACT has been generously supported by a grant from the Penn Treaty Special Services District.
