Creative Cloisters Photography

Hereford Cathedral’s Cloisters are nestled behind the main cathedral building and feel a world away from the business of the city. Once home to the Vicars Choral, the Cloisters have been a source of inspiration for centuries, and now we are inviting individuals to come and explore their own creativity in this tranquil and beautiful space.
Open to creative professionals, amateurs and complete beginners, the Creative Cloisters sessions will give people the chance to create their own poem or capture photography with the support of a volunteer.
There will be a poetry and a photography session throughout the day and visitors are welcome to book on for one or both sessions.

Photography – Visitors can explore the Cloisters using photography as a means of reflection and discovery.

The session will start with an opportunity to visit the Old Chapel and view a short video telling the story of the Cloisters. A volunteer will then provide a series of prompts to consider, and time in our Cloisters to respond to them by taking photographs.

All visitors need to bring is a digital camera of some kind – but for this session, a smart phone is as good as a DSLR! This isn’t about being the best or most experienced photographer; it is an opportunity to pause, reflect, and consider the environment around you.

All visitors will be given an opportunity to print their favourite photograph at the end of the trail, as a souvenir of the pilgrimage.

Please note that images taken during this event are not permitted for commercial use.

This event was developed as part of the Eastern Cloisters Project which was supported by Heritage Fund UK.
