5.30 to 8pm

£43 per person

This workshop, led by Gary Lintern, is aimed at photographers of all experience levels, including absolute beginners. You will have private access to the Bowes Museum and its grounds. It is scheduled for a moonless night, during astronomical darkness. The building’s floodlights will be turned off, so (weather permitting) you will be able to get shots of the night sky, including stars and the Milky Way, over the roof of the museum.

Access will also be available to key parts of the interior, including the foyer, the staircase, and the top floor (paintings, sculpture and silverwork on display, including the iconic swan). We will work in two smaller groups, taking turns to have an hour outside and an hour inside.

Bring a tripod and a red light torch. Light painting is allowed, as long as no direct torch light is pointed at the paintings. Numbers are strictly limited to 28.

You will receive an email two days before the workshop – providing advice on equipment, meeting locations etc.

This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 23 October to 3 November 2019.
