The ACP is moving into a brand-new darkroom!  Stay tuned for a formal announcement soon!


In this fun, hands on workshop you will explore the basic principles of photography by spending a day making photographs with simple pinhole cameras. A pinhole camera has the essentials of what is required to make a photograph - a light tight container, a small opening and some light sensitive material. 

The course will cover a range of pinhole cameras from simple and homemade to the more sophisticated professionally made cameras. You will explore paper negatives, film and digital applications. There will be a significant darkroom component, however prior darkroom experience is not necessary.

This is a full-day workshop with a maximum class size of 8 participants.
