Meet at 7.30pm at the Westward Ho! Slipway
A working party will gather wood earlier in the day to make a fire; any pyromaniacs who want to be involved in the fire building please email our chair Sadie who will coordinate it.
Bring with you as many of the following items that you have:
- Torch / flashing light

- Anything that emits light eg lighter / candle / match / radio controlled car

Mike Bentley and Dave Green will lead BBC members in the making of pictures at night using light sources available to us. There will be natural light from an almost full moon plus torches, flame and all of the other sources brought along on the night.
Dave and Mike will provide laptops for instantly viewing the images produced and coloured gels to hold over light sources.
There will be some group collaborations on making big complex images light a postcard of Westward Ho!; there will also be small group images light portraits of the artist making a light drawing (after Picasso). There is much scope and need for members to contribute to the creative process.
