    About this school

    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. As a workshop leader, I am currently working for community interest company Workshop 305, providing photography and printing workshop for adults with learning disabilities. 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.
