Delivered by Northumberland Libraries
As part of the Hadrian’s Wall 1900 festival, Northumberland Libraries are running a project called Photographing the Roman Wall: Then and Now. The project has been made possible thanks to a National Lottery Project Grant from Arts Council England. There will be a programme of events celebrating the life and work of the Hexham photographer, John Pattison Gibson. To mark Gibson’s enthusiasm for photographing the Roman Wall, Northumberland Libraries are offering a series of photography workshops. The first two workshops will be led by local photographer, David Taylor. David is a professional freelance photographer and writer specialising in landscape and travel subjects. www.davidtaylorphotography.co.uk
Each workshop will begin at The Sill with a welcome and a brief introduction from David. Throughout the day there will be three walks with opportunities to take photographs. The first will be a walk of approximately half an hour from The Sill to Sycamore Gap. After an hour learning more about photographing the wall the group will then return to The Sill. There will be a break for lunch. From The Sill it is a short drive to Cawfields Quarry car park followed by another hour of walking along the quarry and taking photographs. The final stop is Walltown Quarry with an opportunity to walk and take photographs too.
The workshops will take place on Saturday 20 August 2022 and Saturday 10 September 2022
Please note the following: Your own transport is required. All the walks require a reasonable level of fitness.Visit site
