Midsummer Arts Festival presents The Glass Garden Photogram Workshop
Suitable for children and families
Taking inspiration from plant hunters, botanists and early photographic pioneers, the workshop will involve participants creating their own photogram artworks. This is a camera-less process that involves capturing the shadow of their composition on photographic paper.
You can bring along small objects and photographic negatives that can be combined with gathered plants and flowers, to create your own unique photogram. Text and drawings can also be used in the process. This photographic technique is a fun, educational tool that enables engagement with the local environment without the need for a darkroom or chemicals. As we move into the digital age the workshop also offers those involved an opportunity to reflect on some of the technologies that have preceded this revolution.
