Bridlington Priory Rooms
The monastic Priory must have been a hive of craft activity in stone, wood, glass and much more. To commemorate this, Priory 900 organized a series of workshops on alternate Saturdays throughout the season. Each workshop offered a small group the chance to work with an expert to practise some of the skills involved.
Workshop Tutors: Andrew Chandler and Jean Illingworth
This workshop used techniques of today rather than crafts of the past; but it provided unrivalled opportunity to use these techniques to appreciate the skills of those created these amazing buildings, and to develop the photographic skills needed to capture the essence of historic buildings in Bridlington and elsewhere.
Jean Illingworth says: “My granddad was a wonderful landscape photographer in the early days of photography, and most of my family are photographers, but I only took it up 9 years ago when we moved to East Yorkshire and I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the landscape, the light, and the big skies. I am inspired by the Yorkshire Wolds, and I also love ancient buildings, especially the wonderful churches we are blessed with in the East Riding. Whenever the light is right, I am out with my camera, frequently re-photographing the same scene in different lights and different seasons.”
The Aims of the Workshop
Participants learnt about basic exposure, composition and the use of light, with an opportunity to review the photographs at the end of each session. The workshop was suitable for beginners or more experienced amateur photographers who wished to develop their skills. Participants were asked to bring their own camera, preferably an SLR or SLR type.
