Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

The newly re­opened Bri­tish Mo­tor Mu­seum is launch­ing its spring pro­gramme of mo­tor­ing re­lated work­shops next month.

Start­ing the new se­ries at Gay­don, War­wick­shire on 9 April is the pop­u­lar Clas­sic Vir­gins Ex­pe­ri­ence Day aimed at those con­sid­er­ing buy­ing and own­ing a clas­sic car. The sched­ule in­cludes a mix of the­ory and work­shop-based ba­sic main­te­nance ses­sions.

There will also be the op­por­tu­nity to ride in a va­ri­ety of clas­sics. The cost is £90 per per­son for the day (10am-2pm) with lunch and re­fresh­ments through­out the day and mu­seum en­try.

Also on the same day, art teacher Richard Cook will present Draw­ing from Au­to­mo­tive His­tory (10.15am-3.45pm). Aimed at pen and ink sketch­ers of abil­i­ties from begin­ner to com­pe­tent am­a­teur, a range of tech­niques will be stud­ied for pro­duc­ing a car study from start to fin­ish.

Mo­tor­ing pho­tog­ra­pher and CCW con­trib­u­tor Lara Plat­man presents a Cars through the Lens work­shop on 16 April (10am-4pm), to help par­tic­i­pants take the per­fect pho­to­graph of a car and learn how to use dif­fer­ent cam­era set­tings.

A new work­shop, Cars through the Lens goes Stu­dio on 17 April (10am-4pm) shows how to de­velop pho­to­graphic tech­niques in a stu­dio.

Pre-book­ing is es­sen­tial. The price for the part-day cour­ses is £37 each, and in­cludes coffee and mu­seum en­try.

‘We’re de­lighted to of­fer th­ese work­shops to en­able par­tic­i­pants to learn valu­able skills in pho­tog­ra­phy, draw­ing and clas­sic car own­er­ship,’ says Emma Rawl­in­son, the mu­seum’s Fam­ily and Life­long Learn­ing Of­fi­cer.


Gay­don’s work­shop ses­sions are very pop­u­lar.
