About this event
We open our doors on the last Thursday of the month for creatives to use our office space, wifi & computers to work on existing projects, meet new people and to be in a creative and supportive environment. We know working as a freelancer, applying for jobs or working from home isn't easy - so come and join the TPF community to meet new people and get work done.
For July’s co-working day, we will be hosting an exciting workshop and photo walk.
Pierro Pozella from PPP cameras will be joining us to deliver an in-depth and interactive workshop which will talk you through how to check and change your light seal in your analogue camera, which is one of the main causes of light leaks and faulty cameras.
After the workshop, participants will be led on a photo walk around the local area, which will be an opportunity to try out your handy work. Pierro will provide every participant with a roll of film, and a free development and scan of the roll used during the walk.
