Brathay Hall light painting workshop

As a surprise session after a hard weekend of evaluation workshops, the nice people at NE Gen arranged for me to turn up at Brathay Hall in Cumbria with 100 LED swords and a camera. Much fun was had, it was very rewarding to see the 30 or so youngsters in the group mak the transition from "WHat on earth is this all about?" to "Wheee! look at this!" after they possibly set a world record for the largets number of people waving LED swords in a single photograph. By the end of the session, they were cackling with glee upon creating some good work, especially bearing in mind that none of them had any previous experience of this particular method of creating visual art.
