August Workshops and Events London

August is on its way and with it comes a brand new selection of walks, workshops and events. We've got a new photography exhibition, our first ever Konstruktor workshop AND a party too. For details, dates, times and booking information read on...

Treasures: Lost and Found
Adrian Bryant, Anne Cauvin, Fabio Pezzarini, Fiona McVeigh

First Thursdays August 1st from 6-9pm
Four film-fanatic photographers have spent the cold and wet spring months of 2013 trawling through bric-a-brac markets and junk yards around London, seeking out once-loved but now discarded negatives that paint a picture of past eras. They have been bringing them back to life with new stories of the moments before and after the photo was originally taken. Join us for the private view of this exhibition on Aug 1st as part of the First Thursdays event run by the Whitechapel Gallery. Alcohol kindly provided by Rekorderlig The exhibition runs from 1st-26th August. All welcome but please send your RSVP to eastlondon@lomography.com.

Sunday 3rd AUGUST from 10am @ EAST – School excursion: Lomowalk to Columbia Flower Market
This walk is open to all the students who have joined the past lessons and who want to mix and mingle and show off their new found skills. There isn’t a better place to do that than in one of London’s most bustling Sunday markets. We’ll meet in store and all head over by bus to join the crowds in admiring the flowers and vintage wares, capturing everything on film.
This walk is free for anyone who has joined our summer school or £10 for those who just want to join in at the last minute. It includes lend-a-camera (for those who wish), a roll of film and discounts on film processing. Please be prepared with a oyster card/bus pass as we may need to use public transportation.
