This Halloween, come over to the dark side for an evening of analogue curiosities and wonders and find out what cameraless photography is all about. In this spooky session, your expert teaching artist will assist you in producing a selection of harrowing photograms using contact printing to obscure and silhouette objects of your choosing.

Take home your own series of eerie black and white prints and an understanding of this cameraless technique.

Tutor: Emily Ryalls

Who is the workshop for?

This course is suited to adults or young people who are totally new to analogue photography, or those who are familiar with traditional processes but have yet to explore experimental techniques.

Do I need to bring anything?

Students can bring objects and found materials to use for the processes if they wish, although materials will be provided to get you started so this is not essential.
