What will be covered in the class?
Learn about light, shadow and projection with artist Jo Gane. In this workshop you will create a working camera obscura to illustrate the way in which cameras function. The cardboard camera is essentially the same as the brass and wood field camera from c.1870 that Jo Gane uses to make her images. Once you have your camera obscura ready to find images, you will explore your home, garden or nearby greenspaces to find images and capture them with a digital camera (mobile phone or other device) and bring them back to the group to share your photographs.
Did you know light travels in straight lines, causing images to appear upside down?
This is also the way your eyes work….

- A cardboard box (a shoe box is ideal)
Scissors suitable for cutting card – or a
craft knife and ruler
Paint, stickers, pens or wrapping paper for
