The Glass Garden Photogram Workshop
Led by artist Brian Cregan, and 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. Children can bring along small objects and photographic negatives that can be combined with gathered plants and flowers, to create their own unique photogram.
This photographic technique is a fun, educational tool that enables engagement with the local environment and your own identity without the need for a darkroom or chemicals.
The participants will also learn about the invention of the moving image and get the opportunity to see and play with the artist’s collection of optical toys.
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.
