This time, we will go to Salts Mill in Saltaire to see David Hockney's painting and other works. Although he is well known as a painter, he has used photography to present a different point of view throughout his artistic career.

"The 1853 gallery" in Salts Mill has a large number of David Hockney's paintings, etchings, and drawings. We'll look at his work first, have a cup of tea, and wander around the mill together. Hope we can take pictures influenced by his work!

• What to bring
- Camera (DSLR, Film, Mobile, etc)
- £1

• Directions and Free Parking
Saltaire is 4 miles north of Bradford, 15 minutes from the M606 and the motorway network. Follow the brown road signs from the motorway.

The Saltaire train station is just across the road from the Mill. It takes 15 minutes to Leeds or Bradford.

Sat nav users: entering Salts Mill's correct postcode brings you into the wrong side of the Mill for the car park. Instead, please set your Sat Nav to BD17 7EF. When it tells you you've reached your destination, keep going along Salts Mill Road following the brown signs - you'll pass a big red brick chimney on your left as you cross the canal and The Waterfront, an office building, on your right, then you'll see the mill at the end of the road. Proceed through the gates into the free Salts visitors car park on the right.
