Practise different photographic printing techniques in this six-week course

Print your own photograms with masks and negatives in this course led by Colette Whittington. Explore this early pioneering photographic technique, printing onto handmade papers, fabric and 3-D objects. Experiment with cyanotype and salt chemicals. Build up your own photographic collection, so you can carry on cyano-printing at home, out on location, or, in the very heart of the landscape.

This event includes entry into our Don McCullin exhibition, which showcases over 250 photographs, all printed by McCullin himself in his own darkroom.


Colette Whittington is a Liverpool based artist/ educator specialising in printmaking. She leads specialist print workshops in galleries and museums all over the UK, alongside her own artistic practice with social engagement bias. She is the author of Project Print, a new book collaboration for Tate exploring print projects to inspire artists of all ages and abilities to get printing.
