Workshops for Schools with Pinhole London

I liked "Learning about cameras because it was like a trip to the past!"  - school pupil

Day workshops (split-class) are available for schools. The workshop introduces the fundamentals of image creation (projection) with the camera obscura and image capture (photography) using simple pinhole cameras. Students get to make a camera, take a picture (a negative) and develop it all within the session. We provide all the materials and instruction for students. Digital positive images are supplied to students with 48 hours. These workshops are delivered in partnership with Pinhole London. Enquire by emailing obscura@fiodra.co.uk

Visits, workshops and team building for groups

If you would like to arrange a group visit to the Floating Camera Obscura please contact us at obscura@fiodra.co.uk. We also offer our Pinhole Camera workshops as a Team Building or Social Event for organisations
