This weekend is the Wanstead Festival and to mark the occasion, Wanstead photographer Carole Edrich is offering to run a photography workshop for 8-to-14-year-olds.
Carole, who works as a dance and travel photo-journalist, says the workshop will include “talking about how to take a nice photo, the basics of composition and timing, and possibly colour awareness too”.
The workshop will take place on Saturday afternoon 1.00pm to 3.00pm, meeting in the garden of the George at 12.45, and will last about two hours. Children attending will need to bring a camera with them, though even a mobile phone camera will be sufficient, and will need to be prepared to work in twos or threes. Parents will need to hang around and will be welcome to join in. “It’ll be really informal but the idea will be to prepare the kids to take photos the following day at the Wanstead Festival,” she adds.
There is room for about 12 children and there is no charge, though Carole would appreciate a pound or two for materials and time.
On Sunday, Wansteadium will publish some of the resulting successful photos – or at least those which the newly expert young photographers want to show off.
