Create a Camera Obscura – Jo Gane

Barber Home – 16 July

Interested in how you turn a whole room into a camera obscura?

For this week’s Barber Home we explore further our online Sights of Wonder’ exhibition by learning more about the Victorian photography of Francis Bedford.

Artist and photographer Jo Gane shows us how to create camera obscuras at home!

This resource is designed for children aged 5+ and is linked to the year 2 and 6 science curriculum.


All you need to know before visiting with your family!
