Eco Phytogram Image-Making Workshop
September 18, 2021 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm BST
In this one-hour introductory session taught by photographer John A. Blythe, you will explore the phytogram method. This is an environmentally friendly cameraless photographic process that combines lumen printing and the chemigram technique to make beautiful botanical images on photographic paper. Unlike conventional analogue photography, this process does not require a darkroom and uses homemade, non-toxic, sustainable developer to create the images.
This session will give you insight into the philosophy of the sustainable photography movement, how to make the developer (a recipe you can take away and make at home) and a chance to make phytograms on a selection of different silver gelatine photographic papers using foraged plant materials.
Simple, accessible, unpredictable and playful in nature, the phytogram technique is a fun process that leaves almost endless possibility for experimentation!
This workshop is suitable for adults (18 and over) and children aged 12 and over who are accompanied by an adult.
