Taking inspiration from plant hunters, botanists and early photographic pioneers, this workshop will involve participants creating their own photogram artworks. This is a camera-less process that involves capturing the shadow of their composition on photographic paper.
You can bring along small objects and photographic negatives that can be combined with gathered flowers from the area around the Mill, to create your own unique photogram.
This photographic technique is a fun, educational tool that enables engagement with the local environment and your own identity without the need for a darkroom or chemicals. As we move into the digital age the workshop also give participants a chance to reflect on some of the technologies that have preceded this digital revolution.
