Join this workshop and learn alternative processes in the art of photography

​Taking inspiration from the Shape of Light exhibition, join artists Melanie King and Diego Valente for a practical workshop exploring alternative photographic processes. Within the day you can expect live demonstrations of different processes, a visit to the chemigrams in the show, and time to plan, play, and create your own experiments. Back in the studio you will explore a variety of application methods and techniques to develop your own chemigrams from stencils, hand prints and spray bottles to using honey, toothpaste, flour and suncream!

Refreshments are not included but there will be a short break for lunch.
