Artist Oliver Raymond-Barker will lead free half-term Camera Obscura workshops at CAST. No previous experience is required and absolute beginners are welcome. Under-12s must be accompanied by an adult, minimum age eight.

Participants will learn about the origins of photography through making simple Camera Obscuras from cardboard boxes and tubes and collaborating on a large room-sized Obscura. Photographic prints will be developed in the darkroom and can be taken home.

Oliver Raymond-Barker is a Cornwall-based artist whose work has been exhibited nationally. He is particularly interested in the mechanics of photography and making images and objects that expand upon notions of what photography is and can be.

There will be two three-hour sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Early booking is recommended as places are likely to fill up fast. The workshops are free and materials are provided, but donations towards costs will be greatly appreciated.
