Curator Katy Vetch and Dreweatts present SAHAR, a photographic exhibition showing framed photographs taken by and through the eyes of children. The children have been taking part in workshops run by Sirkhane DARKROOM, which is situated in the Turkish city of Mardin, a few miles from the Syrian border. When the children first see an image appearing from the photographic paper in the dim light of the darkroom, they often use the Arabic word for magic: SAHAR.

Flaxley represents Oliver Messel’s only country house commission. It is an important legacy of one of the 20th century’s most iconic designers | Find out more here
Over the centuries Chilham has been under many different ownerships, including Kings of England, as well as a dauphin of France. Since 2002, the castle has been home to the Wheeler Family.
