We've added a super-pledge: Solarcan Workshop

7 likes

Workshops are a great way to learn about something you're interested in with a group of like-minded people. As Solarcan is as much a learning experience as it is a camera we've added a super-pledge to our Kickstarter available to our UK based backers that offers exactly this. Here's the pledge description:

Are you part of a school, club or society that loves to learn and create? This super-pledge option will reserve a fun and informative half-day workshop with Solarcan creator Sam Cornwell.

Practical activities will include creating your own fully functioning Solarcan from scratch. Understanding how the Solarcan works and tips and tricks on how to achieve the best images. Theory will touch upon astronomical knowledge and photographic history using Sam’s fun presentation skills.

Let's break down what you'll receive:

  • Build your own Solarcan from scratch 
  • Discover the science behind Solarcan in a friendly classroom setting
  • Methods on scanning, photographing and editing your Solarcan image
  • All materials and necessary tools provided
  • Everyone will take home their own Solarcan!

What your group / students will learn:

  • An introduction to basic astronomy
  • A look back at the history of photography
  • How art played a role in the creation of Solarcan

All with Solarcan creator Sam Cornwell:

*Mullet and moustache may or may not be included

The pledge amount is just £395. This works out at less than £30 per person for a half day session in which you'll build and take home your very own Solarcan camera and a healthy slice of photographic knowledge! 

The max group size 15 participants and flexible dates are available from August-December 2017.
