Saturday 23rd September

Introduction to street photography with a film camera (SLR) Cost £30

Nick Carrillo, our resident artist and an experienced photographer, is leading this session. Join Nick for an exciting opportunity to explore the art of street photography using a film camera (SLR). Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned photographer, this event is perfect for anyone eager to capture the essence of the streets. With Nick's wealth of photography experience, he'll guide you through valuable insights and techniques to master this unique genre.

This in-person event at Hazlehurst Studios allows you to roam the streets and capture everyday life. Learn the art of composing compelling shots, playing with light and shadows, and capturing those candid moments that make street photography so captivating.

During the workshop, you'll also have the chance to acquire the skills needed to use an analog film SLR camera and process your own film.

After a brief introduction and equipment demonstration by Nick Carrillo, the first part of the workshop will involve shooting black & white film based on your chosen theme. Subsequently, you'll proceed to process your film, producing a set of negatives ready for scanning.

While it's ideal to have some basic understanding of camera controls, it's not essential.

Friday 6th October

Hazlehurst Urban Sketchers - cost Free

Hazlehurst Studios is excited to announce the launch of our inaugural urban sketching group. This informal gathering will be led by our resident studio artist, Allison John, a dedicated urban sketcher.

What is Urban Sketching? Urban Sketchers is a global artistic community that specializes in sketching on location within the cities, towns, and villages they call home or explore while traveling. This creative movement originated on Flickr in 2007, thanks to the efforts of journalist Gabriel Campanario.

It's a fantastic day out, spent with kindred spirits, sketching the beauty of your local surroundings. This is an excellent opportunity, especially if you're a bit apprehensive about sketching in public on your own. Plus, you'll have the chance to connect with fellow locals who share your passion for sketching.

What Should You Bring? Make sure to dress appropriately for the ever-changing British weather! Bring your preferred sketching materials.

Our inaugural gathering will take place at Hazlehurst Studios, starting at 10 am and concluding at 2 pm. We'll enjoy a leisurely local stroll and take a break for lunch. You're welcome to bring a packed lunch to enjoy in a sociable atmosphere.

Mark Your Calendar for Future Dates:

November 3rd (Location to be confirmed)

December 8th (Location to be confirmed)
