Join local photographer and teacher Richard Jeffery for a half day workshop in close-up photography. The three hour class will cover equipment and practical techniques and suggestions, and much of the content would be suitable for those with compact and bridge cameras as well as DSLRs. Part theory part practice, set in the grounds around the Boilerhouse Gallery at Sandy Hill Studios in Corfe Castle, with a maximum of 6 students (minimum of 2 to run the workshop). We can work under cover if needed, so the workshop will run whatever the weather. Probably not suitable for children under 10.

Cost £35 per student, payable on booking. Cancellations will be accepted up to 10 days before the workshop, and of course all fees will be refunded if the course is cancelled. Please email to book your place – – or for more information.

If enough people are interested, the morning can be extended to a practical shoot photographing on the heath at Studland, looking for sun dew, funnel 

web spiders and other small local flora and fauna. Additional cost £15 per student, minimum 3, and you will need your own transport.

Please dress appropriately for a British summer (!). You might want to bring water and a snack, although tea and coffee will be provided in the morning. There is a good bakery in the village with sandwiches, etc – 3 minutes from the gallery. Do bring a tripod if you have one.

Some workshops run from the Boilerhouse Gallery, part of the Sandy Hills Studios set up.

Approaching Corfe from Wareham on A351, take the first left after the Studland turning, just before the road climbs to the village square.  Go under the railway bridge and turn immediately right along the track leading to the workshops and gallery – look out for the signs.   Coming from Swanage, the turning will be on your right at the bottom of the hill as you drop down from the village square.  We have limited parking at the gallery for customers.  On foot, the easiest access is over the footbridge at Corfe Castle station.
