In the past couple of weeks we have started a series of workshops in conjunction with Northcall Community Centre in Moortown, Leeds.
Here we can see Steve, our tutor and facilitator addressing the group on a lovely May morning.
The group are made up of regulars at the centre and have a real mix of experience and technical knowledge of photography, but all are keen and enthusiastic- making for a lively and fun group.
As well as straight forward photography training the group are developing (pardon the pun) their social circle and their outside interests and highlights the fact that at Folkus Point we are not just for people with cpmlex and special needs, but also for the general population who are looking for more reasons to get out of the house, new ways of making friends and growing their range of interests and hobbies.
All the attendees have brought their own cameras, in some cases just small digital "snapshot" cameras, in other cases there are rather nice DSLRs. In both cases we are ehlping them to make the most of their cameras and to get a, hopefully, positive experience which will encourage them to take this hobby further.
A full report and images from the course will follow in a few weeks when the course is done.
