Workshops

Isolated Moments Camera Obscura
Photography’s main tool is a camera. The camera’s parent is the Camera Obscura, from the Latin meaning “dark chamber”. As a child I had my own chamber – an attic bedroom where the South-East facing window blind had a small hole torn in it. On a sunny morning that bright light bounced off the scene from outside, through the tiny hole, flipping and reversing a projection of it onto my bedroom wall. A quite stunningly simple but moving experience. The wide world outside was now inside, contained and controlled in my own personal safe space – my camera, something I found and still find very calming and settling. This workshop aims to help you make your own calm camera by creating a Camera Obscura at home.

UNDISCOVERED ISLAND: SOLVE THE MYSTERY children’s activity
Lakeside
An imaginary underwater world with unique plants, birds, fish and giant corals that light up and sing – what’s this? An undiscovered island! Let us decipher some mysterious messages and see what lays on this fantastic place… Join us weekly to see the story unravel. Lakeside Arts and Makers of Imaginary Worlds have joined forces in making a truly unique interactive installation: Undiscovered Island, but before we can bring that to life fully, we need your help. We’ve received a message that we can’t decipher – are they any codebrakers out there?
