Friday 15 September, 10:30am-3:30pm
Join this fun and immersive camera-less and contact print photography workshop to create eco-friendly botanical prints from plants and explore the history of some of the earliest photographic processes.
Working with the sun or UV light source, learn how to create beautiful floral Prussian blueprints using the Cyanotype process, colourful Anthotypes using vegetable emulsions and solar Lumen prints using plants and flowers.
This practical hands-on one-day course explores early non-toxic alternative photographic printing processes. Participants will use plants and leaves to make camera-less images, called photograms.
On completion of the course, you will go away with a series of prints from each process, detailed how-to-guides and the knowledge to continue the practice at home.
The session will cover the brief history of these historic processes and further research information.
These workshops are perfect for all skill levels including complete beginners.
