A photography course is a great idea for a gift. This year Photofusion has put together a few ideas so that you can share the joy of photography this Christmas…

Pinhole Camera Workshop

This specially designed workshop includes a 5×4 Ilford Obscura pinhole camera – sent out before Christmas to go under the tree. This beautifully designed camera (which retails for £60) comes complete with everything you need to get started. The day long workshop on January 17 covers everything the recipient will need to know about using the camera – including loading film and paper, calculating exposure, processing film and paper in the darkroom, and printing an enlarged image.

Simple Structures for Handmade Books

On December 5, we are running a day-long workshop with Clare Bryan during which you will make several handmade books. These books can be used in the exploration and development of your own work. Or, why not mount your own work in one or more of the books for a genuinely personal and unique gift?
