What you will learn

This practical workshop will introduce you to photographic and solar printing processes and camera-less photography, such as Cyanotypes, Lumen prints and Photograms. Perfect for beginners and photography enthusiasts alike, this workshop will offer a hands-on exploration of those processes that will liberate you from the constraints of traditional photography. You will be experimenting with compositions using leaves, flowers and fruits, as well as man-made objects on different types of paper and fabric. During the course, the tutor will provide a step-by-step guidance, which will include coating techniques and processing procedures for the making of creative results. By the end of the workshop, you would have acquired skills that you can use and experiment at your own time. Please contact Niki Sianni for any further information niki.sianni@morleycollege.ac.uk
