Event description

Description

£95 including materials
5 week course on a Tuesday evening 6pm - 8:30pm
4th June - 2nd July

The chemigram is a simple painterly process which can be applied in the darkroom using darkroom chemicals and resistant materials such as petroleum jelly. They can often seem like images from another world, and have a very psychedelic feel. During the course, you will learn:

- How to create your own chemigrams
- How to build up multiple layers using other techniques such as photograms
- How to use your own negatives in a creative way
- How to solarise a print
- How to create lumen prints
- How to apply printmaking techniques to photographic paper

This is a fun and experimental 5 week course for anyone interested in photography, printmaking or the arts; no previous experience of photography or darkroom work is necessary.
