Lumen Print Workshop with Vicki Reed

Vicki Reed will lead students through the fun of learning the lumen print process. Lumen Prints are photograms created by placing plants directly on silver gelatin black and white paper and placing in the sun to ‘develop’. The colors in the resulting print depend on the plant, humidity, ambient temperature and duration and intensity of the sunlight as well as the type of paper used. Students will have an opportunity to try several different papers and will learn how to make the prints permanent once they have been exposed.Though some botanical materials will be supplied students are encouraged to bring plants, flowers and any other organic materials they wish to experiment with along to use in the workshop.


Date: Monday October 6th from 11am-4pm at the Linden Street location.


Non-member price: $35.00

Member price: $25.00
