Photography workshop and presentation

Are you interested in doing more with your photographs?  Do you know someone who would benefit from a photography workshop?  Your photographs do not have to be related to the First World War.  Find out more about this photography workshop at the Bowes Museum…

Photographic artist Lee Karen Stow has many years’ experience of using photography creatively.  She will be running a half-day photography workshop for photographers with moderate to advanced level of expertise on Saturday 4th November at The Bowes Museum starting at 10.00.   Lee will share thoughts and tips on how to create and sustain a personal photography project or long-term body of work. Learn how to turn your chosen theme or passion into an individual narrative, expressing what you love about life. She will also look at ways to share your work, to exhibit and ways to get your work seen. The cost for the workshop is £15 and this includes admission to Lee’s afternoon presentation on Poppies: Women, War, Peace.


At 2.30 on Saturday 4th November, Lee will talk about her touring exhibition which remembers women whose lives have been affected by war, from WW1 to conflicts of today, alongside a botanical series of the poppy wildflower in all its colours. Her work is inspired by Moïna Bell Michael and Madame Anna E Guérin who immortalised the Flanders Fields poppy as a symbol of remembrance a century ago. This event is included in the cost of the photography workshop; otherwise it costs £3 to include light refreshments (FREE with museum admission charge/annual pass and for Friends).

You can book for either or both events by emailing or telephoning 01833 690606.
