In this 1 hour workshop you will experiment with a variety of substances to create abstract images using light sensitive paper.


What is a chemigram?

To create a chemigram, everyday chemicals and substances are creatively coated onto photosensitive paper under daylight or incandescent lighting. The chemicals & substances |(such as honey and bathroom cleaner) applied to the paper will begin to react with the paper & act as a resist when dipped in the darkroom chemicals. The paper is then dipped into the developer and fixative in any order to create a variety of results. The developer will encourage areas to turn black, while the fixative will encourage a lighter colour palette. Chemigrams often contain an array of colours such as pink and purple hues due to the unstablisation of the print. It's likely the prints will continue to change in the hours and days after your workshop!
