Photographing Food at Home Workshop

with Derek Lomas

Derek LomasPhotography Workshop SQ

Photographing Food at Home Workshop with Derek Lomas on Sunday 12 June 1:30 - 4:30pm
An introduction to natural light and flash light food photography that can be reproduced in a small room/kitchen.
No experience required, just enthusiasm for the subject. A DSLR is preferable for the type of shots we’ll be working on, having your own camera not essential, assuming you are aiming to buy one in future.
Derek will start with a brief introduction and some technical exposure matters, but only those relevant to our subject. Everyone should leave with a good idea on how to reproduce the shots we take on the day.
Derek is a professional Still life and Portrait photographer whose clients include L’Oreal, Waitrose, and The Sunday Times.
A voluntary donation to Sprout of £10 is suggested for this Introductory Workshop. Numbers strictly limited so please book your place by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Sprout’s Artist in Residence August 2022

Follow the Furzedown Fleece

2nd to 21st August 2022 

Residency drop-in times: TBC 

Please check social media to confirm dates and times

Follow the Sheep SQ

To find out more about our Artist in Residence please click HERE

This artist’s residency is about wool - we'll be processing a whole sheep’s fleece. The journey of transforming a raw fleece through to usable yarn involves many different steps, many decisions and lots of skills, much specialised equipment, and a whole other vocabulary.

The natural fleeces are locally sourced from city farms or from sheep farmers and breeders beyond London.

Everyone can come and watch or have a go at these traditional activities run by Geraldine Kelly and Friends from the Vauxhall City Farm Spinners and the London Guild of Spinners and Weavers, who will run drop-in sessions to try your hands at carding and drop spinning, and have workshops to learn and practice spinning with a wheel, tapestry weaving techniques, fun challenges and demonstrations of spinning, plying, carding and blending.

We are working on the full programme of events which should include
Workshops on spinning and weaving
Enter the Drop Spinning Challenge
Tapestry show on the theme of the over-use of plastic and recycling
Selection of natural wool skeins, dyed yarns, and natural woollen products for sale
Drop in and chat with us about wool and other natural fibres
If you would like to participate or can support this event in any way, please get in touch by emailing Sprout
