Annual festival offers photo workshop

-A A +A

The annual fall heritage festival at The Homeplace on Green River will be Saturday, Sept. 6.

The festival will feature a photo workshop by Lindsey Wilson College professor David Goguen. There will be sessions from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m.

Homeplace officials ask for a $5 donation for parking, but there is no charge for the workshop or for many of the other activities at the festival.

Goguen is an experienced photography teacher and this will be his third year leading a photo workshop at the festival.

The classes are informal and tailored to both beginners and intermediate photographers. They include "classroom" time as well as time taking photos at The Homeplace and a critical review of those photos.

Those attending should bring a digital camera. Complex single lens reflex cameras are not necessary. Any digital camera will do.

Reservations are encouraged and can be made by contacting Goguen at goguend@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8241.

Activities at the festival will include mule wagon and hay rides, a petting zoo, face painting, Kentucky arts and crafts demonstrations and sales, live music, trail hikes, food vendors and more.

The Homeplace is located at 5708 New Columbia Road, between Campbellsville and Columbia, and is a joint operation of Taylor, Adair and Green counties.

The farm, first settled in 1804, is being restored and is known as Kentucky's Outdoor Classroom.
