As an early form of photography, we will explore how to push the medium in different directions regarding abstract imagery .
Using a range of fine-art papers we will experiment with negatives; objects, acetate drawings and existing images to make unique new forms. You will learn different production techniques, preparing surfaces, how to handle the chemistry as well as how to continue with the process at home.
All materials are provided but if you prefer, you can source negatives you would like to use on the day or, provide a digital image in advance which we will convert to a negative for you to use. When you purchase your ticket, we will send you information about source material for this technique.
No experience is necessary, you can approach this workshop as a complete beginner or exploring your knowledge further. All materials are included in the workshop price.
Doors are open for tea and coffee at 9.45am and we aim to start at 10am and be wrapped up by 2pm. If you need to leave early, let us know at the start.
