This afternoon workshop with Kasia Kaminska will introduce the anthotype printing process, a sustainable photography process made with plants, paper and the sun.
Participants will be given a brief introduction to the anthotype process and its history and will be guided step-by-step through the making of a print - from gathering materials mindfully to preparing them for printing. Participants will take their prints home to expose their own handmade anthotype.
All materials will be provided however participants are encouraged to bring their favourite flowers and foliage and, if possible, an old photo frame to make their print.
All levels welcome but children must be accompanied by an adult.
