Pinhole Wizard at the Art House

Wakefield district’s very own Pinhole Wizard and local photographer Bob Clayden, will be helping adults and families to create and use a pinhole camera as part of Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day on Sunday 26th April.

Hosting a special workshop, from 10am – 4pm at the Art House Wakefield, Bob will demonstrate how you can put old tins and boxes to good use by turning them into pinhole cameras – creating pictures using a traditional camera without a lens.

Capturing the city with their self-made cameras, those taking part in the workshop will learn how to take pictures using a pinhole camera. In addition they will also be taught how to process their own black and white photographs before uploading them to the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day website.

Bob Clayden comments:

“I love photographs taken with a pinhole camera so Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is a great excuse to recycle old tins and capture some exciting pictures.

“My pinhole workshop is educational and great fun; it’s traditional photography at its best!”

The Worldwide Pinhole Photography workshop will take place on Sunday 26th April at the Art House, Wakefield. Places are limited and cost £30. To book or to find out more details contact The Art House on 01924 312000
