Whau Solar – pinhole workshop
@ All Goods & Ken Maunder Park
Saturday 15 June | 10.30am – 2.30pm
This is a hands-on solargraphy workshop. We make simple pinhole can cameras and load them with photo paper in the darkroom on site. After a break for lunch, we drive to nearby Ken Maunder Park and install the cameras along the Whau River. These will continuously expose over several weeks capturing the arc of the sun and river. At the conclusion of the Whau Arts Festival (July 9) the cameras are collected, the results scanned and emailed to the participants.
To celebrate the process, the images will be shown at All Goods as an exhibition in September!

Featuring Creature Post, their aim is to create experiences that draw people out of their everyday reality, expanding the realms of physical possibility with light, sound and theatre.
“This year we look to celebrate our local neighbourhood by lighting up the letters in the iconic ‘Avondale’ mural in the heart of the village, drawing inspiration from the original artwork, the local community, and geography.”
