Altered Images (SOLD OUT)

Michal Iwanowski

Altered Images is a whole day workshop exploring experimental photographic processes around the theme of identity with Michal Iwanowski at the Old Laundry Rooms Darkrooms in Made In Roath Studios on Saturday 20th August.

The theme for the workshop will be exploration of colour and form in selected camera-less printing processes, from monochrome photograms, through cyanotypes, to anthotypes using natural materials growing in the Made in Roath garden. We will aim to use a variety of plants to cover the colours of the rainbow, depending on the flora available in the garden. But with the use of cyanotypes and turmeric we will at least have the yellow and blue to create a Ukrainian flag at least.

The practical activities will include:

Introduction to the workshop (examples of work we will be making, how to safely use the darkroom, health and safety, schedule).

Then we will work through three processes:

1. Photograms

2. Cyanotypes

3. Anthotypes

This event is free but booking is essential due to limited spaces.
