Next Gen x Sheffield DocFest

We had a brilliant time at Sheffield Doc Fest with some of our Next Gen group!

We watched the excellent Tish, a moving portrait of social documentary photographer Tish Murtha, who dedicated her life to documenting the lives of working-class communities in North East England.

Next Gen – Photography Workshop

In our next session, we’ll be looking at how to take better photos using a smartphone with top tips from professional photographer Helen Rowan.

Whether you’re looking for a career in social media or just want to develop your photography skills, our July workshop is for you!

Bakewell Arts Awards

This August we will be in residence at Bakewell Old House Museum delivering free art workshops to re-create a mini Bakewell. The beautiful historic town centre buildings will be made using the clever magic drawing technique and the town will gradually emerge, week by week.

This project is funded by Bakewell Rotary Club and Bakewell Town Council.
