Photogram Workshop Saturday 8 August

 

Photogram image EK 2015

Artist Elisavet Kalpaxi leads a workshop for families to create photograms, unique photographs made without cameras. Participants will learn how to expose and develop prints in the darkroom and at the end of the workshop all prints can be taken home.
A photogram is an imprint of objects on a light-sensitive base (usually paper). The principle of creating direct prints using diverse processes and light sources predates the invention of photography.

The workshop is programmed in response to Nicholas Mangan’s exhibition  Ancient Lights, currently on at Chisenhale Gallery

All materials will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring transparent objects or objects with interesting outlines that could be used for your own compositions.

For children aged 4-12 Please note: children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult. 12-2pm

For young people aged 15-25 who have an interest in art and want to have an engagement with arts organisations, enjoy learning about creative career opportunities, vocational workshops, networking and making new friends.
3-5pm

Programmed in collaboration with Chisenhale Gallery.

This event is free to attend but places are strictly limited and booking is essential. To reserve a place please visit the Eventbrite page here.
