Hone your creative skills at the West Cork Stone Symposium’s ‘Light on Stone’ photography workshop
This is a chance to improve your photography skills at our one-day stone-themed workshop! Take pictures of the stone-filled West Cork landscape, capture images of stone masons at work, and discover how to photograph the wonders of stone in close-up.
We’ll be working alongside the craft workshops at the stone symposium, tackling different kinds of challenges against the backdrop of West Cork’s stunning Sheep’s Head peninsula – a European Destination of Excellence. You’re sure to be inspired throughout the day by the creativity of the Wild Atlantic Way as well as this stunning coastline!
An Inspiring Place
Craftspeople, artists and photographers draw constant inspiration from the extraordinary quality of West Cork’s light: this is the perfect place to spend time learning how to make the best of your camera.
