Come and learn how to make lumen prints in the beautiful surroundings of Shrewsbury House.
Lumen printing is the contemporary version of a process developed during the nineteenth century known as photogenic drawing. Objects are placed on traditional photographic paper which is then exposed to sunlight to create an image. This is then fixed in photographic fixer as used in a traditional analogue darkroom before being washed and dried.

During this workshop you will work with a range of leaves and flowers to learn how to make your own lumen prints. After an introduction to the technique and its history, and a demonstration of the process your will create your own lumen prints experimenting with different photographic papers and exposure times. At the end of the two hour session you will leave with a range of prints. You’ll also receive a handout at the end of the session recapping the process and detailing a list of suppliers and online resources. This workshop is only suitable for adults due to chemicals being used.

This workshop will be led by Sally Gunnett, an artist and teacher who works with alternative photography and printmaking techniques and has over ten years of teaching experience.

Leaves and flowers will be provided but you are also free to bring your own items to create your image with. Aprons and gloves will also be provided.
