Photogram Workshop for young people Saturday 8 August, 3 – 5pm
Artist Elisavet Kalpaxi leads a photogram workshop for young people, focusing on how to use light as a source of energy to create images and reflecting on moments of revolution in the work of Nicholas Mangan. The workshop will include time to visit the show, meet new people and discuss works made on the day.
Participants will learn how to create photograms using basic tools and processes. They will learn how to expose and develop prints in the darkroom and at the end of the workshop all prints can be taken home.
A photogram is an imprint of objects on a light-sensitive base (usually paper). The principle of creating direct prints using diverse processes and light sources predates the invention of photography.
All materials will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring transparent objects or objects with interesting outlines that could be used for your own compositions.

Programmed in collaboration with Chisenhale Art Place.
