This short but compact workshop will introduce you to a very unique anthotype printmaking process discovered in 1842 using watercolour paper and crushed flower petals or plant juices like turmeric or spinach to create botanical images or recently even photographs! I will teach you how to prepare your own emulsion- after the workshop you will be able to take home and use the skills you have learned here to create your own art. I will also show you how to make anthotype print using digital photograph from your phone or camera (you can see a sample photograph on the video here) Join with your friends or kids to experience a fun and creative day.

About your host, Magda Kuca Alternative Photography
Polish photographer currently based in London utilizing historical photographic technique of wet plate collodion. Her works has been subject of several solo and group exhibition around the world. As an educator, leading alternative and historical photographic techniques workshops. Collaborated with various acclaimed art institutions and galleries, such as British Museum, University of Arts London and more.
The idea of alternative workshops is to bring to the wider public -adults, children, seniors- range of workshops which aim to raise awareness about very beginnings of photography and encourage experimenting with them in most creative way. Whether experienced or not, workshops are tailored for various kinds of audience, from small groups to community engagement projects. My journey with historical processes began in 2013 and since then through experience in both education and hands on photography assignments I gained excellent skill set which includes range of photographic techniques: more experimental and complex such as wet plate collodion photographic glass plate process invented in 1856, gum bichromate, salt print, as well as those bacis and simple to use like cyanotype, anthotype or pinhole photography. For last few years I have taken part in several festivals, larger community projects and private events internationally, providing participants with a great deal of knowledge, experience and entertainment.
In the past I have collaborate with various art institutions and galleries across London, including University of Arts London, British Museum, Four Corners Gallery, providing all sorts of unique, historical for local communities and participants of all levels of experience: adults, seniors, children and people with learning disabilities.
