Artist Rowan Lear leads a playful and experimental workshop in embodied photography.

Together, we will explore the woodland around Birnam and Dunkeld with cameras, taking inspiration from the multi-sensory world of plants, before steeping and making plant-based photographic developer and processing their films.
