Saturday 11 June 2022 - Sunday 19 June 2022
11:00 am - 4:30 pm
Creative workshops for young people, age 16 – 24
As part of a UK wide National Skills Sharing Partnership Programme, with the National Portrait Gallery, London, we are working with two amazing photographers to explore who young people would identify as the role models and icons of tomorrow in Welsh culture, and to commission new work for an exhibition featuring portraits of Welsh icons.
On the Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June, join photographer Mohamed Hassan for a two-day workshop; learn from Mohammed’s years of experience and insight into capturing a sitter’s portrait, introducing key concepts and ideas on the first day, and a chance to experiment with taking your own portrait on the second day.
On Sunday 19 June, join photographer Megan Winstone for an online session, as they present a quick fire slideshow of potential sitter with quick facts about them. Who is inspirational to you? With a live googling shared screen session, this informal and involved session will help us shape an upcoming exhibition at the Gallery in the Autumn, of the icons and roles models of today in welsh culture.
