Photography workshops for young people to take place in Reeth

Two photography workshops for young people aged 11 to 16 will take place in Reeth this summer.

Organisers say the workshops will enable young people to engage in the arts in new and contemporary ways and are great for those looking to learn new creative skills, build a portfolio, learn new skills, have fun and meet new friends.

The workshops will be held on July 25 and 26 and August 21 and 22  at The Space in Reeth.

They will be run by Dales photographer Jo Coates.

Jo added: “Photography is a strong and visually engaging topic for pupils of art.

“As a young person growing up in North Yorkshire I didn’t have the chance to attend or access the arts which is why it felt really important to set this in motion with The Space in The Dales.

“I went away to study at 16 and came back to Yorkshire a year after graduating from the top arts university in Europe and am looking to share my skills with young people, for them to have direct access with contemporary arts.”
