Flash Art

Before the 'selfie' there was the studio portrait... Lady Clementina Hawarden was a prolific 'snapper' and an early pioneer in the world of photography. Take a plate out of her book (or camera!) and create your very own light image using authentic original techniques. You can even avoid the problems of your artistic endeavours fading by transforming them into a photo fridge magnet or keying.


Free (there will be a small charge for some activities)
