Saltaire 1 Day Photography Workshop £50


Based at the Butterfly Rooms Gallery in the World Heritage Site of Saltaire, West Yorkshire, this one-day course combines informal classroom based learning with an on-location practical.  The well-preserved Victorian mill village of Saltaire features fine Italianate architecture and imposing buildings, alongside both the River Aire and Leeds-Liverpool Canal.  This backdrop provides a wealth of subject matter and inspiration.

The workshops are about improving your photography using your own camera, so you are welcome to bring a compact, bridge, or SLR type camera (either film or digital). All levels of experience from beginner up are also welcome.

The Butterfly Rooms

The workshop runs from 10.00am-4.00pm, and includes:

  • Welcome and Introduction at the Butterfly Rooms Gallery
  • Presentation about photographic terms, techniques and compositional advice
  • Walking tour of Saltaire, stopping at points of interest for photographic opportunities and tuition
  • Lunch break (food and refreshments are not provided, but there are a variety of shops in the village where these can be purchased)
  • Continuation of walking tour around Saltaire
  • Classroom evaluation and critique of images brought by workshop participants
