This three-hour course will introduce you to one of the oldest photographic processes. You will learn how to produce unique, delicate prints on paper that you have coated yourself, by exposing it to UV and sunlight.
Following a practical introduction and demonstration, the session explores the creative possibilities that this simple interaction of light, objects and light sensitive paper offers.
No previous photography or darkroom experience necessary.
All materials included in the fee.
Please come with a collection of objects to make Photograms with. Anything with an interesting outline/shape works well, preferably something that will lie relatively flat under glass. Translucent things also work well, as do detailed objects like lace, feathers, flowers etc.
Wear clothes that you don't mind possibly…
