Pinhole

$50

A pinhole camera is a light-tight box with a pinhole for a lens. It takes unique photographs that are dreamy and imperfect. In this mini-workshop you will make a pinhole camera and use it to shoot gelatin silver negatives in our studio or around the neighborhood. We will provide basic camera materials but you are encouraged to bring your own object to turn into a pinhole camera.

Murals

$55

Photograms use objects to block light from a light-sensitive emulsion, creating a 1:1 ratio between object and print. In this mini-workshop we will use large sections of paper and/or cloth to print a wide array of objects and our own bodies to create a mural scene in cyanotype. We recommend you sign-up with two others as we will create groups of three to work on their own murals which you will take home at the end of the session. You are encouraged to bring your own objects for photograms (and they can be big!).

Photograms

$50

Instead of negatives, photograms use objects to block light from a light-sensitive emulsion. They are simple, design-oriented images that can be as minimal or ornate as you like. In this mini-workshop we will use cyanotype and gelatin silver paper to make photograms with found objects, pressed-plants, and our bodies. You are encouraged to bring your own objects for photograms.

Liquid Light Tiles

Liquid Light Tiles

$50

Liquid Light is a silver-gelatin liquid emulsion that can be painted onto paper, cloth, stone, wood, and other substrates. If applied correctly, photographs can be printed onto the substrate with an enlarger or through contact printing. In this mini-workshop you will learn how to prepare a tile for Liquid Light emulsion and print onto it. The print can be a photogram (using an object as the negative) or from digital negatives of digital images. You are encouraged to bring your own objects for photograms. If you would like to use a digital image for a nominal fee, you can email us your image prior to the class so we can have it ready to go.

Cyanotype Scarves

$50

Cyanotype is a chemical process that is sensitive to UV light and creates prints in blue tones (it is also called a blue print). In this mini-workshop you will learn how to apply cyanotype to cloth and print photographs onto it. The photograph can be a photogram (using an object as the negative) or printed from digital negatives of digital images. You are encouraged to bring your own objects for photograms. If you would like to use a digital image for a nominal fee, you can email us your image prior to the class so we can have it ready to go.
