Cork Photo is delighted to be working with award winning photographer Joan Alexander to bring you this exciting workshop:

Building on the familiar, much loved Shadow Theatre this workshop creatively introduces the origins of photography and animation through the basic elements of a box, light and shadow. Using handmade Shadow boxes we create a fold up DIY shadow theatre in a box, developed as a fun activity centering around ideas of visual storytelling using shadows.

The process begins with cutting out shapes and ends as a digital stop motion animation or a short video that can be uploaded and shared on a smartphone, tablet or larger screen.


Venue: Camden Palace Hotel, Camden Quay, Cork City

Cost: 12 euro per participant (10 euro per child in family)

Age: 6 -13 (under 6s welcome but need to be accompanied by an adult)

Date: July 6th – 2pm
