Join Fun Family Workshops
Join our education team at two family-friendly photography workshops.
Free Collage Workshop
Inspired by images in the International Photography Exhibition 163, come and create your own imaginary landscape. Using collage materials, construct a landscape image filled with colour, creatures and nature that shows your idea of an 'ideal world' - what will you create?
Creative Cyanotype Workshop
Print your own cyanotype onto a postcard or RPS tote bag for you to keep and take home afterwards. Cyanotype uses a light-sensitive solution and sunlight to create striking and beautiful blue negatives.

Buy Prints and the Zine
This year we've created a special limited-edition zine as an extension of the International Photography Exhibition 163. The zines are selling fast, so don't miss your chance to get your hands on one.
Prints of selected entries to the exhibition will also be available to purchase.
There will also be drinks kindly supplied by Lost and Grounded Brewers.
We are located at the PhotoHub inside Paintworks creative quarter on the A4, Bath Road across from Arnos Vale Cemetery. Our building is beside The Martin Parr Foundation.
