About this event

Climate change continues to be an important issue to young people, with school strikes and protests happening across the globe. 

How can we empower our young people to engage with such a huge issue? 

Artist Alex Hughes has taken inspiration from photographer Stephen Gill to create this workshop where you will learn how to take a series of unique photos by applying objects to the camera lens. This collection of images will then be used to create an animated Gif to share online.

Through this workshop you will develop good subject knowledge in accordance with Teaching Standards (3) and gain confidence in new techniques to take back to the classroom.
