The Light Painting workshop we ran March in was a bit of a success. It didn’t attract the numbers we were aiming for but that was actually a good thing as it gave people more space to play with. When we run it again in the Autumn (which we definitely will) we’ll deliberately limit the numbers to 10 and make the session longer.

But thanks to British Summer Time we’ve got plenty of time to figure out the details. The important thing is those eight who came, most of whom had never done anything like this before, left with big grins, great photos and a chunk of new knowledge..

Lots of photos have been added to our Flickr pool. Here’s a selection (click to visit on Flickr):

Thanks a million to Stan’s Cafe for letting us run around their theatre-cum-warehouse space for an evening, and steal their milk. They were the perfect hosts.

And like I said, we’ll be back for more of this in the Autumn, once those pesky summer nights are over.
