Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Uncover unseen photographs from the Manx Museum archives in a half term workshop which starts on Monday. Discover the history of photography through portraits of people and places in the Isle of Man from years gone by. Children will also be able to dress up in historical costume, take photographs with handmade pinhole cameras and develop their own portraits.
Anthea Young, education services officer at Manx National Heritage, said: "This workshop will not only provide an opportunity for children to look at previously unseen photographs from the Manx Museum collections, but Stephen Lillie will also be exploring the science behind pin hole photography enabling children to take and develop their own images."
The workshop (1pm-3pm) is an introduction to the iMuseum which is due to open in March. The iMuseum will hold portraits of Manx people, many thousands of photographs of Manx places from the 1850s, as well as 400,000 pages of newsprint.
Admission is £5 per child, places are limited and booking is required. Tickets are available from the Manx Museum Heritage Shop.
