Photo Mosaic - a free photography workshop for children

Photography workshops for kids are good. Free photography workshops for kids are even better. On Sunday 25 March, the Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch, London, will be offering a free afternoon of photography for young people aged between 11 and 19.

Participants will be working with a professional photographer to hone their skills, both with the camera and in the editing suite, and have access to the museum's objects - as well as themselves as portrait subjects - to create a series of 'tiles' that will be compiled to form a giant digital mosaic at the end of the day.

Sounds pretty good to me, especially as it won't cost a penny.

The workshop runs from 13:00 to 16:30. To register for a place, or to get more information, contact Vanessa Weibel at the Geffrye, by either email ( or telephone (020 7749 6013).
