Make it: Photography photo

Join photographer Jasprit Singh to learn how the first inventors of photography experimented with materials and nature to capture the world around them.

Choose your subject, put together your picture and explore early techniques inspired by Jasprit’s work and the museum’s collection to create your own photo to take home.

You will learn some key photography skills suitable for all ages which can be used with any photographic equipment.

The workshop is booked to take place in the garden to experiment with natural light, but in case of bad weather it will take place indoors using UV light equipment.

Please click on 'download brochure' on the right-hand side if you'd like to find out more about Jasprit Singh.

All materials will be provided, all sourced sustainably.
