Family photographic workshops

Museum nan Eilean in Stornoway is holding a two day programme for families to explore some of the history of Lews Castle by re-interpreting and acting out scenes and tableaux from Lady Matheson’s photographs from the 1800s, featuring picnics, hunting scenes, other family members and landscape.

The programme starts with a workshop on Friday the 18th of May between 6.30pm and 8pm at Museum nan Eilean.

On Saturday morning, the group will be in situ in the town’s Lews Castle grounds, where they will be setting scenes and taking photographs.

Attendees are asked to bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy in the Castle Grounds.

On Saturday afternoon, the final workshop will be with An Lanntair in St Martin’s Church, using photography techniques, old and new, to create an album for the future.

The event is FREE but places are limited, and children and accompanying adults are asked to attend all three elements of the programme.

Due to the limited number of places, it is necessary for attendees to book in advance.
