There will be a workshop, special offers on all pinhole cameras and books, plus the debut launch of our 1st Silverprint Pinhole Competition with some fantastic prizes and interesting categories.

The workshop is free and will be held at 11am on Friday 4th May. It’s limited to 10 participants so you’ll need to be quick; please email anna@silverprint.co.uk before Friday 26th April.
