Commenting on the workshops, Justin Quinnell said: "We burgeon up in an era of digital image and perception, living in the virtual rather than the real. Educators and children are bombarded with commercially driven 'pleas' to provide wonder, however, there are many affordable experiments mixing old and new technologies which can open up the wonder of light to people who may else believe perception can only be viewed with digital screens and downloaded apps.

We also aim to give insight and knowledge to individuals and a sense of biography within their city wherein 1803 Humphrey Davy and Thomas Wedgewood met up and invented the first photographic process."
