Celebrate Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day with us by learning the art of pinhole photography!
In partnership with Gravy Studio & Gallery, we are excited to offer an introductory workshop taught by Philadelphia artist and educator Stephanie Slate on Sunday, April 24th.
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!
The week after the workshop, we’ll be mounting a one-day Pop-Up Pinhole Photo Exhibit at Gravy, in which all are welcome to show their work!
Level: This workshop is suitable for anyone, regardless of prior photographic experience.
Space is limited, so reserve your seat today!
