About the workshop:
Create contemporary images through the rediscovery of early photographic processes. In this course students will explore and experiment with some of the earliest ways of making photographs; techniques now used by photographic artists who are re-thinking these alternative processes.
Using techniques such as the cyanotype process students will experiment with the basic properties of photography – objects, light and the different ways images can be recorded onto paper both inside and outside the darkroom. These are simple processes that require no previous darkroom experience, but they can create unique and beautiful prints as a result. There is no toxic product handling in the workshop and no toxic fume exposure
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop may require a little bit of preparation from the students and an email will be sent out by Julie a week prior to starting the course that will give a full explanation.
