February 13th, 2018 by Sandy

Soon British Science Week 2018 will kick off in areas of Bristol. To start it off on 10th March will be ‘Photon Fun’, a free event which consists of four free workshops on pinhole photography and will be held at 10:30am and 11:30am, and again at 2:00pm and 3:00pm., on the day. Plus, there is a talk at lunchtime talk,with Justin Quinnell, the pinhole photographer, at 1:00pm,

Attendees to the hour-long workshop sessions will get the opportunity to use a pinhole camera for a selfie, watch negatives form in a darkroom and can take home a 3-month exposure pinhole camera constructed here. The workshops are sponsored by the British Science Association.

Justin Quinnell commented that growing up in a digital era. we live in a virtual world rather than the real where both children and educators looking to provide wonder, get bombarded with ‘commercially driven’ answers. However, he said, there are many experiments where old and new technologies can be mixed, that are affordable and can help open up the world of light to all. They may otherwise believe only digital screens and apps can be used to view our perception of things, he added.

The free workshops will be held at St. Pauls Learning Centre in Bristol. Those who wish to attend the workshop, can book a place through the Eventbrite website (
