By focusing light through a tiny hole, the pinhole camera uses the fundamental principles of photography to create images on film or paper. The pinhole camera was one of Diane Evans favourite photographic tools. Inspired by the light gathering properties and unpredictability, she used them to wonderful effect and showed students how to make their own cameras and develop their exposed negatives.

Join artist/photographer and Emily Carr University of Art + Design studio technician Michael Love – colleague and one time student of Diane Evans – for a special pinhole camera making workshop.

Participants will have a chance to make their own camera and to test their new creation by making an image – these will be developed on site under Michael Love’s supervision.

The workshop will last from 1pm until 4pm on Saturday, February 24, and all supplies will be provided. 

Space is limited.

Reserve your space for a suggested donation of $30.
